so long story short i had my perfect looking weber ready to go out and had the pieces wrapped in a microfiber cloth. i left them on the kitchen counter in the cloth since i normally get up before anyone and my wife sleeps like a log and almost never gets up at night. i went to go to bed and my wife gets up to get a glass of water ... i knew i should have got back up and moved them but thought no she is always careful. she spills a bit of water and then proceeds to grab the microfiber they were wrapped in to wipe it up and sends the pieces (separate head pieces and handle) across the kitchen onto the tile and grout. top cap is dinged and nicked everywhere now and one corner bent up some. handle nicked up. baseplate not to bad but still some small nicks. arghhhhhhhhhhh. overall i guess my fault mostly for leaving it there. sad sad day when a weber dies a death like that. going to see if i can at least make it shave-able again tomm. it will never be cosmetically perfect again Facepalm Angry Facepalm

Sorry to hear.

Similar process failure here last year with Mongoose.

I learned my lesson the hard way as well.

If you have been shaving long enough then this has in all probability happened to you in one way or another. Sorry to hear it happened to a precious razor.

Sorry to hear that, hopefully it can be repaired. The Weber ph is one of my favorite razors so I feel your pain.

The main reason when we remodeled our bathroom, I was adamant that the floor wouldn't be tile...

That is a horror story!

If it makes you feel any better a friend of mine has a '60's Les Paul that was a gift from his father.

It was in a guitar stand, on a tiled floor. His wife was vacuuming and knocked it over, snapping the headstock completely off.

The marriage survived [touch and go Wink ] and this too shall pass...

Sorry that this occurred, but it was hardly her fault.

Sorry to hear a favorite razor was damaged. Accidents happen, some costlier than others.

Stainless steel razor breaks... I knew to be suspicious about them... Might as well get a $30 pot metal razor if this is what happens to them. this would not happen with a $15 GEM Micromatic. I know because I put it to some experiments...

Thanks for the warning.

maybe you could get it shaped up and cerakoted???? if not im sure you could sell it at a major discount to someone who would try to bring it back to life, or maybe you get a different top cap and make a franken razor and it shaves even better than the orig weber.  Trying my best to see the glass half full.

I am in the process of having my bathroom re-done, and just got a very hard (unfinished) tile floor installed.  A couple of days ago, I grabbed my Paladin PK-47 out of the medicine cabinet, it slipped, hit the sink, then fell to the floor.  Horrified, I was sure there would be a ding or at least several scratches.   Not a single scratch.  I must have felt the whole handle several times just to be sure.  I have not used a magnifying glass, but it appears to be totally unscathed.  Unbelievable luck!

Do you have any photos of the razor head as it looks, at the moment? It doesn't sound be overly affected, but I could be completely mistaken.
Good luck.

not right now. i dropped it off to a friend at a machine shop to see if he can somehow fix it. the whole one corner was banged in and rounded off and kind of tweaked up at the tip. can not be shaved with as it sits. you can easily feel that corner.

Really sorry to hear about your bad luck. This could happen with a razor that is still being produced, but happens with a Weber ..... Angry
