    Thanks for the links. I was under the impression that Gentlemen's Best was the only US distributor. This is good to know in case I come across anyone looking for that. For what it's worth, Ray (proprietor of Gentlemen's Best) speaks very highly of them for their quality and performance.

    I can't say that DEs fascinate me much, but the Pils DEs are stunning pieces of German craftsmanship.

    Oh no you don't Robin, we're wise to your little game. First driving us to Thater and now it's Pils. Just because you guys have to bail out Greece don't expect help from us. Har Har.

    I think the razor in all stainless steel is a masterpiece.

    Probably overpriced, unless like many folks here 'very into shaving' and willing to pay for that experience.


    My only critiquing of this razor would be the fact it lacks any knurling or positive grip on the handle , think Pils was going more for an modernistic art deco look and they defiantly achieved that.

    It shaves wonderfully , not aggressive or mild, although as mentioned the angle of attack is very unique to this razor and takes some getting used to.

    If I were to get one it would be the all stainless. The thing is that I don't shave with DEs, only with straights. I still have quite a collection of slants and some vintage Gillettes among others. So I am tempted to buy one of those because they are a beautiful piece of workmanship. The price may or may not be high based on what it is but one way or the other I could buy a really nice straight for that money and I would actually use it. Different strokes I guess.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    That is a nice review on a very clean easy to read well laid out website , thanks for that link .


    I thought the Pils boxy shaped head was inspired by an earlier German predecessor , The Apollo Mikon .
