The affect of shipping is a worldside problem. Handle Length: 90mm. Timeless, Tibam, Stork and Razorock for starters.
Stork is a bit pricier and hard to find, but nicer. Razorock is out of stock. I'm waiting on my second Tibam handle and it's taking forever with the shipping issues. There used to be a seller whose name started with Bear selling on ebay, I don't see them anymore. Last edited: Jun 15, Click to expand I have purchased many handles from Stork the past several years, and I had a recent exchange with them.
It appears that TiBam was sitting on quite a pile of titanium, thus they are still able to make them, but yeah You pay for it, but if it's important to you, it's worth it. I've briefly owned one TiBam Ti handle and it was really nice too, much less expensive than Stork. So it seems my best guess is either wait for Stork to have Titanium, find a light weight SS, or try and bride someone here to sell me one lol.
West Coast Shaving sell Titanium handles which may be an interim solution. Which razorock handle do you use? Can you share a link? These handles are machined MTG Jr. The NewYork comes 90mm standard, I believe, and I had him make mine 85mm instead. I have purchased custom sized Russian Ti handles from rusdrunkbear and TiBam via the bay.
The rusdrunkbear ordered long before covid are great. The TiBam were made and shipped quickly in April, but have been in shipping limbo ever since. It's Hedley. MTG Jr said:. It's Hedley said:. I am curious, do you know the approximate weight of the New York Ti? View attachment Found these guys on Etsy. Offered in Ti, Al, and SS. Got the Ti version on its way. Haircut and Shave Co is releasing a titanium razor in a few weeks.
What's the vendor's name? I bought the head without a Timeless handle because I didn't like their titanium handles either. You must log in or register to reply here. Similar threads. Titanium Blade Feel. Latherati Apr 10, Double Edged Razors 2. Replies 21 Views 1K.
Here are a couple of mine. This one is a custom made to fit the Blackbird 80 mm New York handle. The neck is 8 mm and fits up into the baseplate just like the stock Blackbird handle. While I like the looks of the stock handle I prefer shorter handles and I also like fatter handles.
Used to be I was not a fan of the looks of the NY handle, but that's changed. It's an excellent handle. The stand is the NY stand. I have at least one or two other NY handles. This is the Radiator handle. It is loaded with fins which looks cool according to me. I was concerned it might look busy but it looks great to me in real life on a razor head. It has very decent grip, too, although everything is smooth, probably due to the fins.
The vendor does not up the price when you order custom variations of his standard offerings. I'm interested in acquiring another Tibam titanium handle or two, maybe, and interested in which of the Tibam handles you have experience with and like and don't like and why. Happy shaves, Jim. I only have one Tibam, a sample 12 made to 85mm which is my personal preference for length.
It's definitely my favorite DE handle out of all my other makes. View attachment As for why The weight, beauty and grip when paired with my Lupo 95 just seems perfect. The Tibam was one of the best shaving kit purchases I've made. I'm sure to pick up another eventually. Click to expand Chan Eil Whiskers said:. Very nice. What do you think? I think it would look fine depending on his approach. On my 85mm, he recommended removing 2 of the rings at the bottom for a proper proportional look.
I think the mm had 6 rings. For 80mm, would he take another ring or shorten the grip section? Perhaps it might be wise to inquire for his recommendation. Last edited: Dec 11, Two Tibam handles 12x75 top Two rusdrunkbear handles 12x75 and 10x80 bottom All are custom dimensions. I have 3 of them, from left to right: New York Sample 12 Prague Each of them is 14mm in diameter at the base and 80mm long my preferred length.
Weight varies, from left to right again, at 37g, 40g and 43g. I like them all, but find the Prague noticeably heavier than I would like. If I can start all over, I would probably have requested for a 13mm thick handle for the Prague to take the weight down slightly. JPG 1. Tanuki said:. View attachment I like them all. The lightly diamond scored third down is the least grippy, but they are all plenty grippy for me.
I have a variety of SS handles at 10mm and like them very well. The additional lightness of Ti seems unnecessary by the time the diameter drops to 10mm. The looks of the top Tibam really appeal to me. In use it has a secure and comfortable grip. I'd wondered about the grip on the top handle. One thing I like about my Radiator handle is how the pattern is the same all the way down the handle.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with a pattern which changes of course as I like those too sometimes. The Prague handle is new to me. Interesting how it looks visually fatter than the others. If you hadn't already given the handles's measurements I'd ask you to measure them. I agree that 13 mm might be better for that one.
Somewhere I've seen a post and photo concerning several handles all of which are in one of the Tibam patterns. Their lengths and diameters vary. One handle is super fat. I can't find the post though. It indeed is 14mm as I specifically requested for one in 14mm to fit the New York stand that I've gotten Probably a matter of my lack of photography skill.
Would definitely have gone with 13mm with a taper to 14mm to fit the stand instead if that can be done even. Good excuse to get another handle from Tibam I guess. They are really great value! I simply have no razor head that "makes sense" to use with it as I have severely downsized my razor arsenal. Very timely post, I need a shorter handle for my Yates.
Looks like a handle that would fit a Yates will also fit the Blackbird I am getting for Christmas. Get the item you ordered or get your money back.
