UFO TiTAN FINE
English text below

NO SE TOMAN MAS PEDIDOS - NOT TAKING MORE ORDERS

Hace casi dos años, en Octubre de 2012 nació el mango UFO TiTAN.
Y ahora, Septiembre 2014, ha nacido el nuevo mango UFO TiTAN FINE.

UFO TiTAN FINE : Titanio. 85 mm largo. 15/15 mm calibre. 58 gr aprox.
La rosca es M5x0,8. Los cabezales Gillette ajustan bien, incluyendo el cabezal NEW. El cuello finaliza a 8,5 mm para ajustar perfectamente.
Nuevo moleteado: Presenta el nuevo moletado UFO aristocrat lanzado con el mango UFO Colibri. Pero está moleteado a la inversa que el Colibri y todos los mangos UFO hasta ahora. El Barberpole gira hacia la izquierda, como las Aristocrats inglesas, no hacia la derecha. Este nuevo moleteado aristocrat es más fino, más cercano a las Aristocrats inglesas de Gillette. Muy elegante, con mucha clase. Además, en este metal, el moleteado es muy claro. Este mango tiene suficiente agarre para manejarlo con seguridad. Este nuevo moleteado a la inversa, en este calibre, es una característica especial para este mango. No va a estar en otros mangos de este calibre por ahora.
Calibre y peso: Este mango es ideal para aquellos que os gusta el calibre 15 mm, pero con un peso ligero. En acero inoxidable, un mango como éste , de 85 mm de longitud, pesa 103 gr., y en Titanio, sobre un 45% menos.
Serie abierta sin numerar. Modelo repetible a demanda.

Thread is M5x0.8. Gillette heads fit well, including the NEW head. The neck ends to 8.5 mm to fit perfectly.
New knurling: It has the new UFO aristocrat knurling released in the UFO Colibri. But it is knurled at reverse than the Colibri and all the UFO handles until now. Barberpole is twisted to left, like the British aristocrats, not to right. This new aristocrat knurling is finer, closer to Gillette aristocrats. Very classy. Also, in this metal, knurling is very clear. However, this handle has enough grip to handle safely. This new knurling in this caliber handle and reverse knurling, are special features for this handle. Will not be in other handles this caliber for now.
Caliber and Weight: This handle is ideal for those who like the 15 mm caliber, but with a light weight. In steel, a handle like this, at 85 mm lenght weighs 103 g, and in Titanium, around 45% less.

UFO KAISER SHORT Review from Joe D., Longwood, Florida, USA -
UFO KAISER CORTO Revisión de Joe D., Longwood, Florida, EE.UU.

Longwood, Florida, USA - October 28, 2013

I absolutely love the handle.  I ordered it to compliment my Ikon Slant and it does so perfectly.  The knurling is not aggressive like the Weber handle, but it is every bit as sure in my hands as the Weber.  The finish matches both my Slant and Weber heads perfectly.  It turns the razor from a simple tool into a work of art.  I sometimes just handle it when I am in the bathroom because it is so lovely. I am simply amazed how perfect it is.

Custom UFO Common Bar, Acknowledgements, from Steven, East London, UK -
Custom UFO Common Bar, Nota de agradecimiento, de Steven, Londres Este, Reino Unido

East London, UK - July 20, 2013

Dear Rafael and Juan,

Just a note to say thank you for the wonderful handles. Photos are enclosed and I just wish I was a good enough photographer to do them justice.

Just to recap I wrote to ask if you could craft a handle that was reminiscent of the classic Gillette Common Bar handle. I love the looks of that handle, which I have on my Gillette "New" but find it too light and felt a heavier handle would improve the shave. That said I wanted a handle reminiscent of the common bar in looks as I felt it suited the new head. I was very pleased to learn that Rafael was interested in taking up the challenge of producing a modern steel take on the original gillette handle

Rafael, a busy man always then spent much time and effort working in producing a tribute to a common bar producing three prototypes. The first was scrapped and I was asked to pick between the second and third. I asked for the third and then asked if I could take the second too as the handles were just stunning. The knurling is beyond comparison; grippy enough to do the job but shallow enough to look very classy indeed.

I have used prototype three and it proved my theory to be totally correct. It elevated that shave I get from my long comb head to new heights.  I have not yet used prototype 2 but imagine I will get similar results. I am considering pairing that with a tech head but first I will try it with an Edwin Jagger head.

Photos are attached as I said earlier. Proto 3 has the new head and proto 2 has the EJ head.


I would just like to thank Rafael for his craftsmanship, Juan for his helpfulness and both of them for being such gentlemen.

Best wishes,
Steven, East London, UK

UFO KAISER Review from Chris C., Hertfordshire, England -
UFO KAISER Revisión de Chris C., Hertfordshire, Inglaterra

Hertfordshire, England - July 21, 2013

Having been shaving with a safety razor for only a short time i have purchased three razors, an EJ DE89, Gillette NEW & Gillette Tech. One thing i had noticed was that although i got great shaves from all three i preferred the heavier and longer handle of the DE89 and when i used that handle on the NEW it made for a more comfortable shave.

Fast forward a month or two and i spotted a thread on Badger & Blade entitled "UFO sightings" curiosity piqued i opened the thread and was excited to see photos of some amazing custom razor handles. Well i just had to order one!

Ordering was a very simple and quick process due to the professional nature of Juan, even though there was a language barrier (Juan's English is far  superior to my Spanish!) the communication was timely and easily understood.

Once Rafael had completed my handle i paid via PayPal and he posted the following day.

On receiving the handle i was amazed, in photos Rafael's work looks amazing but to hold such a finely crafted piece of work is a privilege.

So far i have used it with my DE89 and NEW with excellent results, it makes what are to me great razors even better, the quality of the knurling means it is secure in the hand, the length suits me perfectly and the weight allows me to shave without exerting any additional pressure.

It fulfills its simple role superbly while adding a sense of old fashioned elegance and charm and has increased the pleasure i get from my shaves.



Included photos show kaiser handle with gillette NEW head on left , EJ DE89 middle & Gillette Tech right

Thank you Rafael & Juan,
Chris C., Hertfordshire, England - July 21, 2013

UFO KAISER SHORT Review from Greg E., New York, USA -
UFO KAISER CORTO Revisión de Greg E., Nueva York, EE.UU.

New York, USA - July 5, 2013

My UFO Kaiser Short handle is simply the best bulldog style handle I have used.  I have tried pretty much every handle out there and the UFO has the best feel, balance and is visually stunning.  I have used it on many different heads and plan on purchasing more in the future.

If you are considering purchasing one of these handles please do so with confidence.  The constant communication and the service provided by Rafael and Juan was second to none.  These handles are heirlooms and you will be very happy with your purchase.  I've included a picture below.


Thank you,

Nota de agradecimiento, de Artie K., New Jersey, EE.UU.

New Jersey, USA - May 13, 2013

Raphael and Juan,

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful  handles I received recently. I also wanted to wait a while before I left my comments so that I could use them and be able to comment on how they shaved when matched with various razor heads and blades. All I can say is, Wow!

The extra heft and feel matched well with several of the razor heads I have and the blades I use never felt better. The extra dimension of matching these handles with various razor heads and  blades is a level of fine tuning my shave that adds significantly to my wet shave experience and is why I enjoy this pursuit of pleasure.

Thank you again and I look forward to getting the Collibri when it is available.

Alabama, USA - May 13, 2013

Rafael made an amazing effort for me.  With only a few weeks until my wedding he was able to make and ship nine beautiful and unique handles to me for groomsmen gifts.  The handles range in style and material are are truly a sight to behold.  I chose the GOLIATH XL in aluminum bronze for myself, and although new to wet shaving, have had great results with an Edwin Jagger DS head.

Each piece is so amazing that it was very difficult to choose one for myself (I will definitely be ordering more).  I can certainly see how Rafael has difficulty letting go of these master pieces after all the love he puts into each one.  The aristocratic curling is  fantastic, but I really also like the TORNADO with the barber pole design - it's extremely classy.

Dealing with Juan and Rafael was an unforgettable experience as well.  The customer service they provide is unlike any you will experience elsewhere.  In today's world of frustrating encounters - this was a breath of fresh air.  I commend UFO on a job well done and recommend them with the highest marks to anyone who wants to use a work of art as their razor handle at an unbeatable value.

This will help make my wedding even more special and I know my groomsmen will enjoy this gift for years to come.

Best,
Clay O.

Bristol, United Kingdom - April 24, 2013

Hello
Just got this one today!

Wow! I was expecting a high quality offering from you guys but this handle is insanely good. I had very high expectations but this handle is far beyond even those. I see people mention shaving stuff being a work of art all the time but this handle is TRULY a work of art. The detail and skill that have gone in to this handle is unlike anything I've seen before.

Many thanks to you both for your time, passion and incredible skill.
All the best

Thank you Rafael

This handle has already bound its self with my soul!. I've only got one razor and I doubt I will buy any more handles. I'd happily just use this stunning piece for the rest of my life. Its that good! I will of course be recommending you to everyone interested in wet shaving. I see a lot of hand crafted products in a load of different areas and have a very critical eye. As someone who is a perfectionist to the point of obsession I can recognise the decent work from the utterly stunning and your work is most certainly utterly stunning. I can see you've gone far beyond what others would deem superb, to the dizzy heights of master craftsman through passion and attention to detail. I personally think you could charge more for your handles as the skill involved isnt reflected in the price at the moment in my opinion.

Hugs to you too!

Disponible rosca para Fatip -
Available Fatip thread

Hola amigos.

Me complace anunciar que desde ahora está disponible como opción para todos mis mangos la rosca especial para cabezales Fatip. Esta es una medida no estándar de rosca.

Debéis saber que un mango roscado de esta manera sólo podrá ser utilizado en cabezales Fatip y no se podrá utilizar en otros cabezales que utilizan la rosca estándar M5x0,8 u otros Gillette vintage. Pero el ajuste en Fatip será perfecto, con la tolerancia adecuada, no en exceso, y asegurará la larga vida de la rosca del cabezal.


Saludos.
_________________________________________________________________

Hello friends.

I am pleased to announce that it is now available as an option for all my handles the special thread for Fatip razor heads. This is a non standard thread.

You must know that a handle theaded this way only will fit Fatip heads and it can not be used on other heads that use standard thread M5x0.8 or other vintage Gillette razor heads. But Fatip adjustment will be perfect, with appropriate tolerance, not to excess, and it will ensure the long life of the razor thread.


Greetings.

UFO KAISER TRICOLOR Review from James S., Tennessee, USA -
UFO KAISER TRICOLOR Revisión de James S., Tennessee, USA.

Tennessee, USA - March 30, 2013

Rafael has truly created a one-of-a-kind treat for me. This project started awhile back, but I was always treated with friendly, and respectful updates on the progress of my custom handle.

The handle is unique in that Rafael found a way to create the piece as I wanted- there are 3 knobs (+ a bonus knob). The configurations possible are no knobs, 1 - 2 - or all 3 at once!
Everytime I hold the handle, I am reminded how versatile and beautiful this art-piece is for me.

The handle knurling is spot on, and the threading works well for my FaTip Grande head, my EJ head, my Merkur 1904 OC head, my iKON S3S head, my Weber ARC head, and my modified-post-size Cadet OC head.

The functionality of the knobs makes balancing the handle to my different shaving tastes very easy. The knurling is tasteful and grips well, but doesn't feel like a prickly-brass-bristle brush against the fingers, and it is easy on towels when wiping the handle dry!

To top it all, the handle is beautiful to behold!
Enjoy the pics!
