Handle length: 90mm
Finish: "machined finish on the exterior parts and a media blasted finish on the interior parts."
Availability: Summer, 2016
First batch volume: 300 razors

Five-six months ago it looked like this:

Definitely interested, but I have totally lost interest in all those "you have to be up at 3 in the morning to log on and pray to the gods of shaving that maybe someone somewhere will put you on a list, to one day maybe let you (if you beg) pay a fortune for more crap that you don't need".

If its easy to buy I may be interested as I looks nice enough!

Agree... A batch of 300 of these razors will probably sell out in a few minutes.

I think I'll wait for the dust to settle and maybe pick one up when the interest has died down if looks like it could compete with my mongoose!

Everybody is getting into the act making SE razors. The original was Classic Cobra followed by their King Cobra. Then the Mongoose brothers (just kidding) introduced there stainless steel version followed by an aluminum goose and very soon a titanium goose. Just getting warmed up. By years end there will be a Shavecraft SE(iKon) slated to cost well under 100usd. Soon the ATT SE will be making its entrance. Lets not forget Executive Shaving's new SE getting ready to hit the market. Poor Phil at Bullgoose kind of got screwed by Mongoose as he was to be their exclusive vendor but they changed their minds so Phil got pissed and said I will make my own. There are still several other SE razors in some type of production or development but I will not get into that because frankly this is getting boring.

I recall buying an Ikon slant head g1 from this dealer, later discovered the head was faulty. Of course, I am sure this trader had no idea... but I wouldn't touch *Bullgoose* with a 10' barge pole, buyer beware.
After that experience, it sounds like I wouldn't touch iKon. But did you contact Bullgoose about getting a replacement or return for the bum iKon?

Yeah, maybe injectors or GEM bladed SE's will be the next wave.

I mostly have what I want out of DE's and SE's.

Only thing I'm really looking forward to are the possible releases of the Bunny injector... And the cheaper version of the Zafirro razor, that futuristic razor that takes twin sapphire blades.
