Thank you, Juan, I have to say I am loving it. I hope to add a titanium one in the future, with approximate specs to this one.

Wow Gary! Both a Red Ring & Darwin lately? Where have you been frequenting?

Congrats on two highly sought after razors. I'd love to hear how you find the Darwin handle to feel in hand.

Today was a special mail call. The result of a great yet small Spanish project arrived - a very special handle, an exact replica of the Rubberset 400:

Now all I have to do is to have it fitted with an appropriate knot, that has to be as good as the handle itself. Thank you very much, Juan! :wink:
