Hey Cart lovers  Smile

I will soon buy my next Fusion cart handle, and have to buy either of these two - the other one will be Christmas present from my GF  Tongue

Which one would you buy and which one do you prefer ?

Pils Fusion or Wilde & Harte The Apsley ?

Both handles are in the area of 9-11 cm (circa 4") long and weighs 90-100 gram (handle only)

FYI - I already own the Pils DE razor, so I know what I get with the Pils
Also own 4 other quality Fusion cart handles, 2 from Mühle, 1 from Edwin Jagger and 1 from Plisson.

I would look at Art of Shaving ...they have some really nice ones...much more reasonable...or Bolin Webb..check out Fendrihan in Canada ...they also have  some nice ones....even E Bay under Fusion handles or Custom Fusion handles....Elite Razor has some new ones based on the $12.95 kit sold by golden Nib or Custom Turning woodproducts.

I already own the Bolin Webb black-silver, and while it's nice for a shower shave, it's not a luxury item like these two Fusion handles are IMHO

Art of Shaving still has a lot of plastic in their handles (at least the ones I have seen from them, so they are definitely out)

These days I only buy heavier stylish luxurious handles for my Fusion, since I'm tired of plastic garbage but love the Fusion cart itself.

I already own the Mühle Carbon Fibre Edition No.1 , why discuss all other razors, when I ask about these two in question ?

I don't use carts unless on travel but I still know a beautiful handle when I see one. My vote is for the W&H. Both are nice looking handles for sure.

By accident, I voteed for the W&H, but I meant to vote for the Pils Fusion:

I slightly feel that this is the one I'm picking up tomorrow  Smile

W & H would be my choice. The lines exude a look of luxury and quality. For me, the Pils is meh.

Wilde & Harte of those 2 Claus. 

But I thought you were considering the ADP fusion?  That would be my recommendation for your next razor.  

This pic is the Mach 3 version but it comes in a fusion model as well.

I vote W&H it's different, especially if they weigh the same

Of the 2 listed I would go with the PILS. To me the W&H sort of looks feminine to me. Also for some reason it reminds me of silverware.  Huh don't ask me why because I don't know ,but I picture a fork when I look at the first one.

I do, but can you tell me the weight of your handle ?

I held it in my hands in a shop and honestly was a bit disappointed.....
