Dear Frds,

most of us love titanium razor handles (plain or amazingly anodized), and we know, how scarce they are and how hard is to find them. So I decided to make a thread "The source of..." to be a main place of share, what we have, where we got it, what was the price, how we contacted the artisan, how smooth and how long delivery took. All these facts will help us to concentrate this segmented market in one place for sellers and for buyer. Frds, any comments pls.

Jurgen Hempel Titanium UFO wave handle, contacted artisan via email, 80 GBP (including registered shipping inside EU), took 2 days to exchange all the details (smooth and prompt communication) and 2 weeks to be delivered. It was packaged in the bubble envelope, these are the pictures out of the envelope. The only problem was that only after receiving it I understood that there are 2 versions: 16mm and 15 mm diameter (third picture). That was confirmed later by Jurgen, but not on then day the order was placed. So be aware, when contacting directly to precisely notice which diameter (version) you want. 15mm has bigger demand and is harder to get. 16 mm in my opinion is more like prototype...

I, too, have a UFO titanium handle, the Titan Fine L.  

I'm not sure whether Rafael will ever be offering these wonderful handles again.

I recently received UFO Titan Fine L...incredible. I also have the Hempel UFO that I ordered directly from Jürgen. Not sure if it's 15 or 16mm but it is very very nice. It's fantastic with the Mongoose and the Blackbird.

Toby Sooter ( Triad Razor Handles ) titanium razor handles, contacted via ETSY shop (https://www.etsy.com/shop/TriadRazorHandles), 145 USD (including priority shipping to EU), same day shipping, 10 days to be delivered. Packed in USPS box with foam bits, wrapped in bubble plastic and placed inside plastic tube. Handles are listed in Etsy shop randomly, at the evening of US time (about 3 o’clock at night by Europe time). Usually only one is listed at time, so it disappears very fast and it is really hard to get one. Quality so far is the best one from all the artisans in the market, a lot of different styles  but no custom orders.

Nice thread cityrider. I have only had Jurgen Hempel handles in titanium. I have always been pleased with his designs and he is great to talk to. I will upload some pictures soon.

Im lucky enough to own both UFO Titan L and XL, likely the pinnacle of Aristocrat knurled Ti handles. I wish I had the foresight to have gotten a Triad Ti with Aristo knurling in the quiver before it became too much of an Esty stalking experience..
