Being a naughty perverted bastard, what if I could give you the ability to use ANY injector bade, schick, persona, feather, or kai in one razor?

just feeling perverted. the design is extremely deceptive in how it looks. the only problem is that traditional injector fans will be unhappy with the head. you have to take the whole thing apart to change a blade, injector boys WANT the key to be necessary. ive seen it quoted, "no springs? it aint an injector buddy"

The whole issue I see is that the entire head is held together by the handle being attached. ANY wiggle on the handle mid shave, will make it an ADJUSTABLE injector,, and not of the GOOD style.

interesting design choice. quite similar in profile to the contour or sensor excel cartridges.

I swear I've read this twice now and still don't get it.

in essence, I have always seen how the fans of injectors are addicted to using a key ,and blade holder to insert a new key. I have actually seen that as a complaint against some of the newer "se" razors on the market.

The bullgoose razor, its a hinged two piece head. it only stays together when the handle is screwed on.

The whole shape of the head is taken from the Gillette cartridge razors. particular the countour excel and the sensor excel. Look carefully as photos of these early cartridge razors and youll see it. spray paint the bull goose razor black and toss in a twin injector blade and youll scream.

I love the concept behind this: small Cobra-like head and Mongoose-like blade clamping. However, based on the latest pictures, aesthetically, this is a dog's dinner. The head could and should slim down earlier and the handle is too hideous for words. I'll wait to see what it looks like with after market handles.

The latest pics of the complete prototype look amazing and since iKon's SE "El Jefe" will be released until christmas, yeah i think i'm getting the RX.

Sadly, like some other fellow wetshavers, seems that my dream of a modern SSSE "GEM blade Type" razor wil be never fulfilled.

Rocnel, and Colonial Razors stated quite plainly that after their current project is done (the AC type SE), they are definitely going the GEM route. Time will tell.
