*** SOLD PENDING FUNDS*** This Handle was one of Raphael's experimental handles as he designed the Apollo knurled King Cobra handles most of us have seen before. Apollo knurling on stainless steel is truly beautiful! I have the certificate and box for the handle.  I also had LAW (when they were in business) fabricate an adapter to allow the handle to be used on any DE razor.  Handle dimensions: 72 mm x 15 mm LAW adapter is approximately 13 mm.  Sorry no wooden box for the LAW adapter, unfortunately when I ordered it they were going out of business and had no more of them to ship out.
Price $250 + $7 shipping (USPS Priority within US) = $257 total.

That is not stainless steel, my friend, that it titanium. :-) Every bit the beauty that we expect from Rafael, though!

EDIT: The adapter is probably stainless. The certificate for the UFO says titanium, though.

Actually it is Stainless steel.  The certificate is wrong when it lists the material used as titanium.
Also just noticed the weight on the certificate is wrong.  It actually weighs in at 79 grams not 55grams as noted on the certificate.  Apparently the certificate is useless folks!

...or, I suppose I could just ask how much yours weighs. ;-)

79 grams...apparently the certificate is wrong all the way around except for the dimensions of the handle, they are correct.

I have been asked why this handle is going for more than the one that sold earlier today that was nearly the same thing.  The answer is simple, the one Tom sold earlier today was aluminum not stainless steel, thus the price difference.

The adapter alone is worth a princely sum. I'm coveting one of those myself...

Indeed.  The adapter itself was $50 if I remember correctly.

Well, to anyone still reading, I can speak to my own experiences. All of my dealings with Nathan have proven him a gentleman of the highest character.
