    Just completed 12 very good Shave with the Chunky Original ES Claymore V1, with a Kai CT Protouch MG. Shame this new one is not made in Scotland, for me the new one has lost some of its desirability.

    • Aggression - mid-aggressive. Hard to gauge it with a SE blade as the blades are so stiff.
    • Head only - bien sure mes amis - of course a head only option!!
    • Blades - AC from Feather. I have shaved with Professional, Proguard and Softguard - all awesome in this razor.
    Feather AC blades are the bomb - in my humble opinion, the best shave this side of a nicely honed straight with none of the hassles.

    I'd definitely be interested in the head only option. Not too keen on that handle design. The head is standard handle thread?

    So if I read it right you are saying to order just the head is the same price as the whole razor ?

    I"m a bit disappointed at the three digit weight of the razor -- i don't like heavy for my head shave and there's really no technical reason for a weighty single edge razor -- but will probably go head only, I"m glad that's an option, I like Alpha's work.

    Is the thread pitch some kind of a standard?

    I miscalculated the pricing... fxxing exchange rates.

    It is $144.99 all in. First fifty sign ups get a bullet stand too in same material.

    head only - $120.00 all in

    yes it is a standard thread - ANY handle will fit.

    Looks like a winner, interesting head design to reduce width.

    If you do have a Tech then do you sometimes get a littled miffed at the aluminium handle? This one?

    Or... maybe you are just wanting to use your dinky little tech handle on anopther razor but don't want to risk stripping the threads at all? maybe you just want a little more bling...

    Well - me too. So I "designed" a new tech handle and I am getting is made in 100% titanium.

    Here are the renderings and some redacted drawings. These will be with me in about a week. Price - $29.99 all in - that includes economy shipping.
