Just got this in several days ago and have not shaved with it yet. I just want to look at it for several more days before the big shave. Very hard to obtain these days I think they are on limited production. At present the only retailers selling them are in Europe. The only vendor I see that has any in stock is yourshavig.com. I have used the stainless steel Rocca before and must say the shave is outstanding. The Jet weighs in at 82 grams and altough the handle is a little bit bulky it really feels good in the hand.

Man, I looked for a black Muhle forever, however I have since transitioned into straights.

That's a damn fine looking razor, enjoy my friend.

I like the look, and congrats on finding a sweet razor!

It definitely looks like something that Darth Vader would reach for in the morning!

I have not heard too much about the Rocca.  Thank you for sharing.  Also, your bottom plate seems to have a different design.

There is a price difference the New JET is 81.82 Euros..{92.73  dollars) and the USA one is 65.29 Euros ( 74.00).....must be some difference

The Jet has some aggressive geometry, so beware of the edges.  The shave is great.  I have the original birch and while the shave result is the same, the original is a little easier to move around the face...my 2 cents.

BTW: $122 on the Muhle USA website.

I had the birch. Mine had issue with the posts that hold the blade... Very tight and I'd have to wrestle with it to load and especially unload. Very dangerous and I nearly cut my finger off. Thankfully I'm in tact.
