I have a very nice Jürgen Hempel handle for my Mongoose, but really prefer a thinner, long handle (of which I have many).  Sadly, the thread pitch on the Mongoose is different than on my other handles and other than the Jürgen Hempel, none of the handles screw on more than a half twist or so.


Options?  I don't think I can chase threads on the stainless handles..  I won't muck up the threads on the Mongoose.  So...  what other manufactures make handles compatible with the Mongoose??

This confuses me. The Mongoose was designed with the standard threading so that it could use most of the handle option out there. Have you contacted Mongoose directly about this? If not, then I think you should as I know they would want to know about it.

As Brian stated, the Mongoose thread is (at least on my B1 and B2) the standard Gillette M5x0.8.

Hmmm...that is an issue. I have tried iKon and Weber Stainless handles as well as another stainless handle of unknown make..

My B2 works with the Mongoose Handles, Hempel Titanium handle and ATT handles.  I would send them an email.

I have used the iKon and Weber handles with my B1 and had no issues at all. Good luck sorting this out! (So far the weber wave may be my favorite for the goose)

I used both an IKon SE and a Parker 26C handle on mine when I had it. Sorry to hear your having issues!

I was also able to thread a few different handles on my Mongoose when I had it.
