The Oristo handle is one only a mother could love.
I really appreciate the opportunity some vendors give us to buy razor heads without handles. The whole industry would offer the option in my perfect world.
The Oristo works for me including the handle. It is a great shaver.

That translates to roughly $190 USD plus shipping and Joe was selling them at $120 shipped. Provided Joe keeps his pricing the same, the Oristo will not be able to compete.

So I did some research. I found a thread on reddit where Joe (razorock) acknowledged that it was a clone of the Black Mamba and was cool with it since there are no patents or trademarks involved. Just a result of free market capitalism I guess. Early backers of the Kickstarter could get the razor for under $100, but now they are asking a ridiculous price for it IMO. I imagine the new iteration of the BM will be more affordable than the Oristo.
