    There's an O-ring or three that helps keep it sealed. The unit can be opened, cleaned, and lubed.

    Outstanding shave with the stahly head and any aftermarket handle. I use a maggard mr5 with mine, so a heavy handle pairs nicely, imho. Please post your impressions of it.

    I typically use a brass Tibam and ATT Atlas on mine, both great.

    These razors have always intrigued me. Partially for the oddity of it, but equally I wonder if the vibrating mechanism lends itself to an easier DE shave for a person with some degree of tremor in their hands? It seems that the vibration would cut down on the amount of "hand action", if I may use that crudely crafted term, required to effectively use a regular DE. Does anyone have any experience with a Stahly in that environment?

    I realize this is an old post I'm replying to, but I'd like to ask how hard it is to do this?

    Unscrewing the top off my Stahly handle was deceptively easy. I was trying to remove the top cap/base plate to change blades. It had been a while since I used it and had left a blade in it. When I spun the top end a couple of turns and noticed the cap wasn't getting loose I noticed the top of the handle had unscrewed from the outer cylinder of the handle. It took a little finagling to get the inner working realigned while reassembling the unit. At the top is the off center counterbalance weight that produces the vibrations. It is held in place by contact with a gear below and a bearing/pin from above.
