The threading of the handle seems standard. It fits some vintage Techs of mine. There was gunk in the threading, though. I suspect leftover from tapping the threads. A drop of oil and screwing it off and on a few times cleared it out.

You are braver than I am.Mine arrived yesterday. The blades arrived just fine. The razor head is pretty ugly due partly to the poor playing job and partly to to jagged look of the top cap.
With a blade loaded in it, the blade gap looked scary aggressive but appeared to be straight. So I decided to give it a go.
Ignoring the appearance of the razor, it gave me a pretty nice shave. I can't say for sure how many shaves I'll be able to get out of the head since it appears to have exposed zmac, but I think I'll get my $4 out of it.

The Facon handle does work wonderfully on the Piccolo.If anyone who has purchased these is interested in selling the handle, please PM me. I'm looking for a bigger handle for my Piccolo. It seems you cannot buy just a Fatip handle, and I really don't need another razor. I may just buy a Grande anyway, but if you don't have an old Gillette or a Fatip and bought one of these Facon's, I'd be interested in buying the handle from you.
Yes, I already tried eBay after you mentioned it in my BST post looking for a Fatip Grande handle.The Facon handle does work wonderfully on the Piccolo.
I was going to buy another Facon razor just to get another handle, but it looks like the ability to buy one on eBay has been withdrawn.
