    Daune is an italian classic.
    Head geometry from a DE razor.
    Handle from a straight razor.
    Full plastic with brass knob.

    Mine is a full white replica, and I love it.
    Just one thing is not of my likings, the weight.
    Really light, but totally manageable.

    So I grab the newer model, from the same italian family wich originally made Daune.
    Razorine is a DE Kamisori.
    Full made of brass.
    Weight is great, and balance is nice.
    But I prefer classic western handle.

    Today I've found on FB a perfect option for me.
    Schiavarelli Daune Plus
    Full size: https://imgur.com/1Bt2GM4
    Full brass, 100% handmade in Italy.
    Handle in three different woods available:
    • olive
    • mahogany
    • wenge
    Some details are very nice.
    Like the finger rest space in the part preferred by the user.
    Or the flush machining of the locking screw.
    The three-pin handle with reinforcement.
    And in general the possibility of having an interaction with the craftsman.

    It's a hobbist in a couple of italian FB groups.
    Totally under the radar.
    For now.
