Good to hear you found a pre 2009 Muhle with the Fatip head. They are excellent shavers. I owned several in the past.

I don't see how it would hurt. In particular I think a menthol loaded splash on a hot summer day would be fantastic.

Excellent and very interesting. I don't particularly like these blades but they are included with every Merkur razor.

There is one currently on eBay but there are 10 bids on it. Its what you are looking for. Just type in Fatip safety razors and you will come to it. Sometimes vendors will get a shipment in from Europe as just recently happened but they sell out quickly. Good luck.

I once had a handle made to my specs from Elite. I didn't have to buy anything else.

Consider the Merkur 41C 1094 open comb. Not too aggressive and yet not mild. This is a good inexpensive alternative to an iKon which now feature a straight bar and open comb all in one razor. All the EJ heads no matter which handle you select are all the same. They are a mild shave but comfortable. ...

Very nice razors. The mechanics of injectors have never been equaled. I think the Schick blades are still the best even so they are currently made in China. They use an all metal dispenser which is superior to the Personna plastic. Use them well.

Re: Anyone else done this?

Got my new JE DE89L and a best badger for Christmas. First shave was wonderful! Best I've had in years. I disassembled and cleaned the razor and put her away for next time. Fast forward a week. Next shave wasn't so good. Couldn't seem to get the angle of attack right or something. It just refused t...
