Offered is a very rare Paradigm 17-4 stainless steel razor, 80mm handle, 100g weight. Comes with an extra top plate that has slightly relaxed threading, allowing the head to be used with non-Paradigm handles. Always handled carefully and used gently. This razor is famous for its extraordinarily smooth and efficient shave. No longer available retail. Asking $725 shipped CONUS. SOLD

I believe all Paradigm handle threading is M5x0.8

There were some past complaints of Paradigm heads not fitting onto other brand handles. This was discussed in various places, including this thread, with post #115 from Andy:

One of my razor's head top caps is supposed to have more relaxed threading to allow more handles to be used. I'm not sure which is which, since I have not used any other handles with the heads.

Which non-Paradigm handles/threading does the other top cap work with?

I don't know. You can probably find the answer in the thread for which I provided the link, and perhaps in other threads.

I broke out the Ti2 head (it’s the same as the 17-4). It fit all of my handles but 1-2.  You are pretty safe with selecting handles like Tibam and Windrose (tried both).  

I believe the original issue as more with the 17-4 handle getting media in it during polishing in the treads vs the threads of the cap.  

Anyhow very nice razor (same geometry as the Ti2) so if you like a nice, comfortable shave that is efficient here it is.
