Rafael (a.k.a UFO) is a very generous gentleman , as when I ordered my Golaith handle , he decided to sent me an extra one to PIF it among the forums members.

Since this is a very generous offer , and the handle is not cheap at all , I have decided to put some rules for that PIF.The rules are

1.Being a member for 3 months (at least).

2.Having more than 300 post.

3.Being willing to write a review in this forum.(hopefully , we will have the review plug in ready very soon)

4.Having the handle for a week only , after receiving it.

5.Due to time , only CONUS members , please.

6.Due to time too , only 10 members would be on the PIF.

[Image: P1250999.JPG?m=1354305054]

I know that they're several rules , but I dont want this handle to "get lost" or people not to write reviews about it.

After the PIF , the handle will be heading back my way , and Rafael have told me to do a "toss-up" (hope that word makes sense for you, gentlemen) among TSN membership , so the handle will be sent to the winner.

So , let me know who is interested in trying/testing this handle.

Thanks to Rafael for such a generous offering to the TSN members.Gracias maestro.

This is an outstanding PIF. I find these handles to be functional art. Unfortunately I don't believe that any of the razors I use can make use of it so I'm NOT in. I look forward to reading the upcoming reviews.

Thanks to Rafael & the Nook!

No Teiste, I don't. At least nothing that I use. I rarely use DE & when I do it's a slant (2-piece). I'm sure it would fit my Merkur Classic (33C) but I have no desire to use that again.

Yes, the closed comb head of the 33C would fit that handle , my friend.

Thanks Teiste and Rafael. Please count me in.

I almost pulled the trigger last night after reading Teistes review, but just wasn't sure about the size.

I would hope to use it with a 2nd gen. iKon OC head. Will that work?

Wish I met the criteria for this handle. Have been wanting to try out a new handle for my EJ DE89 but as a student funds don't permit it currently. Great pass-around though, look forward your reviews.

I really like the big handles. I'm not eligible, not enough posts, but I'll enjoy reading the reviews.

I've got a couple emails asking me regarding the reviews and so.No the reviews dont have to be like the ones I make , of course.The forum is about sharing info , and If I ask to make a review of the handle , is because , more reviews = more information to others.You can make the review as you pleased , with or without pics , and with the info you consider the important one.

Also I have realized that some good members , who have been in the forum for over 3 months havent reached the 400 messages , or are close enough , so Im setting the messages to 300.

Gary , if you want to try the handle , you are in.

I like your style Teiste. Take the bull by the horns.

I fully agree. It may be a young Board, but with some good old farts.

Gary, nothing peronal. Cheers
