I have one with a black wenge handle. Very mild but smooth and efficient.

not bad. its a decent overall razor. a bit to mild honestly for my tastes overall. construction was much better though then the grande versions i have.

For me, it improves the shave of the Fatip OC. I use the Gentile cap on the OC baseplate and the result is fantastic. The Gentile by itself is a touch mild. The Fatip OC cap on it boosts its performance. So you can use both razors just in different ways

Tried my Gentile with a Joris handle-fit perfectly! Brings some added weight to the table .

I'm only 5 shaves in with the Testina Gentile but just loving it. Great blade bend to the design, all brass, and shaves beautifully. Fatip created a great razor in my opinion with this latest model...an overlooked gem.

I know that the Fatip open comb models are touted as all brass, but I seem to remember hearing that the top cap on the Fatip Gentile was plated zamak -- not so?

I believe everything is brass on both models.
