The Alpha Techtanium is here. A beautuful titanium handle for your tech or your travel razor.

It is now live on my site BUT please come direct to me through THIS FORUM I will give free shipping - $29.99 all in.

Come on and PIMP YOUR TECH!!

I took inspiration from one of the classic Gillette tech handles to pay this homage.

The dimensions are true to the original BUT the material is pure 6L4V Titanium alloy.

This is a perfect handle to Pimp Your Tech or as a travel handle. It has a standard M5 x 0.8 thread so will fit the majority of safety razors

Note - the razor head and the carbon fibre stand are for illustration only - not included

  • Material - 100% 6L4V Titanium and hand finished
  • Fully machined with a light machined finish
  • Length 72mm

Works out ~£22.50
Seems a good price to me and will certainly be an enhancement to my Gillette Techs and Personna BBS-0s.The original handles of those two are really lacking, for my taste.

Well yesterday just before this arrived I spined a Feather SE blade and shaved with it in my ER 1912 bathroom set and I'll not be ready for another shave until tomorrow so you'll have to wait, I'm afraid.
I'm looking forward to trying it too.

it looks kinda slippery, how was the shave with wet hands?
Having had a lot of razors but never one in Titanium I was unsure what the grip would be like...

I'm mightily impressed. Not one for flinging lather all over but under normal circumstances and conditions, i.e. with plenty of soapy water about and with wet and soapy hands, the grip on this thing belies the look of the handle altogether.

I'm not sure if this goes for all Titanium handles or if it's down to the light machined finish as described by Alpha but it just works. Surprisingly excellent grip.
I'm very happy and the pairing with Tech and Personna heads looks spot on, imo. Very in keeping with the originals but being distinct, opposed to a clone.

The only handles that I've had that were truly slippery were chrome plated, anything else is better.
