Anyone know if it's cheaper to buy the Pils Razor straight from their site than it is to purchase from Royal Shave?

With the value of the Euro vs the Dollar it's much cheaper to buy directly from Pils even with the shipping. However, the trade off is the wait time. If you are willing to wait 2+ weeks go for it.

Well, have you considered the obvious ?

Going to thee two websites and check the prices, plot in your home address and calculate the shipping......... Doubt Huh

Royal Shave:

http://www.royalshave.com/pils-101ne-sta...edge-razor

Pils Rasur Germany:

http://www.pils-rasur.de/razors/double-edge/101ne.html

Was that difficult ?

You're welcome  Wink

Placed my order and don't mind waiting 2 weeks at a cost of $207.83 shipped!! Now I wait for the new Alumigoose to hit Maggard and I will be done for a while!!  I think I will have the Pils, Hone, One Blade, Razorock Black Mamaba, Mongoose Stainless or Alumigoose 2 and ATT Slant S1 in rotation for a while.  Someday I'll get a Wolfman but for now I'm good!!

I ordered my Pils from The Different Scent in Berlin, Germany (because they accept paypal and Pils don't). 
However, I've had no correspondence from them (other than an initial order confirmation). Not sure how long I'll have to wait (or if in fact it has even been dispatched).

Give them 2-3 months time, and you should receive the razor, Ben

I also bought one from a Different Scent. They finally answered my email with tracking but as I recall it took about two weeks to get to the US.

Mine was shipped Tuesday. Pills provided me with a tracking number and a link to track the razor's progress. Now I wait!

Just kidding, Ben.

If you order directly from Pils, it can take up to 6-8 weeks, seriously.
If you order at The Different Scent in Berlin, I think/guess 10-12 days time to Australia would be the waiting time, you can expect.

I found Pils very pleasant to deal with. They even included a free lather bowl when they were out of a particular item I ordered. I think they are a small operation, and are probably producing razors in response to the volume of orders. However, the craftsmanship is outstanding, and worth the wait. Two weeks is better than the eight months I've been waiting for a Wolfman, and I've waited over a year for a custom straight.

Or you may hang onto the ATT razors, sell the PILS and pick up a Wolfman.  It is always a crap shoot. Biggrin

I bought and sold the PILS twice...it just isn't for me. While the machining is excellent, I did not like the head heavy nature of the beast and the thin smooth handle always felt like it was going to slip from my hand. Like everything, YMMV.

Same here. Owned it twice. Loved the craftsmanship but the handle killed it for me. Absolutely loved seeing it on my counter in its own stand.
