I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a new Muhle Taos for sale at a local Marshals for $15.00!

I believe the suggested retail is $70.00 Dollars?
To make a long story short: I LOVE IT !
Anybody know this model?

Welcome to TSN.  I've never tried the Taos but, for $15.00, you certainly found a good deal.

Unless I am wrong (which is possible) the TAOS is a variant of the R89 which Mühle made for The Art Of Shaving (hence TAOS). Apparently some of these razors found their way out into the wild (according to some post at B&B from last year, I can't confirm it).

As the regular R89 model direct from Mühle's website sells for 36€ a suggested retail of $70 seems high... I kind of doubt they ever sold for that. But regardless, an R89 for $15 is a steal!

At $15, the TAOS razor is a steal! The replacement Muhle head alone can set you back $25-30. Upgrade the TAOS handle to a heftier Ikon or Weber bulldog would make it an excellent daily driver.
