She's shaving in the shower, as I do. The alum will disappear pretty quickly.
Oh, my apologies; it sure will.
You’ll generally find the shrink wrap tubing in the electrical section of Lowes and Menards. If you go to an electronics store or auto parts store you can ask an employee.
I have one that I used black cloth duct tape on that works great and soaking in a sink full of water hasn’t made it come off yet.
Really you just need to keep your shaving hand free of soap. I know that the stuff you make is slick as can be. Just keep your hand and razor rinsed off.
O rings can do wonders with razor handles. You can just place them in the places for best grip and they don't get sticky over time and a good row has staying power.
I bought some textured rubber, to replace a worn-out camera grip. It has an adhesive that is heat-set with a blow-dryer on low. I had some left, so I am trying that on the razor. It feels just right. Now I have to see how it stands up to water.
Let us know. I’m interested in how the textured rubber stands up.
Hear! Hear! 15-20 should do the trick. Even if the handle isn't slippery, the grip is very comfortable.
Update- I put the textured rubber on the handle and used it this morning, in the shower. It felt very good and the rubber shows no signs of coming loose. Here is a link to the product, in case anyone is curious.
I have a Ming Shi razor and I really never had any issues if the hand is reasonable dry, just use a little alum and the problem is usually resolved. I do not shave in the shower so using alum no issue. I thought the handle was a dud at first but quickly realized the handle was doable and not a issue! Most owners do not complain about the handle and the razor is a good one IMO.
and now you have a poor naked gun. Shivering in the cold. .
