This is my next Fusion razor in front of the Acqua di Parma Fusion razor.

It's sold out everywhere I can find, but I'm on the waiting list for it.

I think it's one of the most beautiful razors I have ever seen.

What do you think ?

Price is around what the Acqua di Parma costs....give or take...... $360, but then the stand is also included  Biggrin

Have you looked at vintage razors , such as PAL Adjustable Injector et al. They probably shave better too.

Ok, a visit to the Muhle website and I have the answer to my question...

Bog oak & sterling silver

"This rare material of the MÜHLE EDITION NO. 3 comes from wood that sank into bogs many centuries ago. 
The wood is refined in rich contrast with sterling silver, with the result that the fine indentations of the wood take on a silvery gleam."

May I ask what you do in the Cartridge sub forum giving advice against cartridge razors to a seasoned veteran member ?

Just asking you politely !

As Ben stated its a wood type, that looks stunning. At least in this Mühle razor. To my eyes. I got to own this one.

I'm aiming at 7-8 Fusions in my den. Number of DE razors in my den is currently out of control......but hoping to stay under 30 by the end of 2016.

Nice enough looking set up I suppose. I am astounded to learn that a fusion cartridge razor could retail for $360 though. Oh well, I need to get out into the real world more often and see what there is on offer. Enjoy it when you get it.

I perhaps did not appreciate the fact that it was a sub division of the Cartridge forum , and thought you were asking for comments on the appearance of the razor as a razor. I am sorry that I seem to have made comment where I should not have done , but sometimes we 75 year olds put our foot in it.

I have been lucky to have seen this material before the razors were made - it is stunning to say the least!

Enjoy!

No problem - just thought it was a bit out of place comment in this sub forum.

Sort of like going into the DE razor forum and post a comment in a thread where a guy wants some opinions on the new Wolfman Red Bronze DE razor, and post a reply where one advices him to consider start straight shaving and to look at some Thiers Izzard & Boker straight razors, that probably will shave better too  Wink

Bob, it's only a select few that has that price tag - like the Acqua di Parma Fusion razor and the Special Edition Mühle and a few Plisson Palladium Fusion razors (the Plissons are actually not even that expensive)

Great to hear that, I was also told by a vendor, that just sold his last (he had two in stock originally) and he siad it was quite a stunning razor to hold in hand.

And he is not just trying to sell me the razor, he is very honest about what razors he really likes and what he does not like so much.........

That's a really nice razor, but I personally like the aesthetics of the ADP razor/brush set. If I were to get a Fusion that would be the one I'd go for.

The ADP Mach3 version plus stand is on Amazon now for under two bills. I like the looks of it; it makes my Shavemac and Bolin Webb handles look like they're slumming.

Thanks, Celestino and I agree - it's a very nice looking material the handle is made from.
Haven't quite seen such a beautiful wooden material before, to be honest.
