That is utterly and absolutely gorgeous! I gotta have me one of those!

If both you guys buy two, might I have one of the spares, please?
I agree, it's probably the best looking razor I've seen in quite some time (well...apart from the Timeless Razor OC head :D).
I'll be trying to get a couple or so if I get a chance...

Took him some time, this process; this video is from 2013.

I didn't care much for it based on the early drawings, but seeing the prototype, yes, there's something about it. And it certainly distinguishes itself from all the other SEs. I'm in.

Phil (Bullgoose Shaving) recently mentioned the price will be about $230.00 I think but not absolutely sure that will include USA shipping. For international shipping probably north of $250.00 + Customs. He is making 300 RX razors to begin with and I suspect will sell those out pretty quickly.

$250 + customs?

Looking at best part of $300.

Hmmm... I don't think I want one that badly.

Might have to look at an ATT or more probably an Executive shaving one.

I like the Rx but the price is a show stopper. I can't justify it when my mongoose works great for me.... And that rocnel as new se for feather coming out ...

Bullgoose created a FB page specifically for the RX and have two beta testers discussing their impressions of it. So far it seems like a "Goldilocks" review - Not too aggressive, not too mild, just right. I got a couple more weeks to decide if the $230 is worth it as it puts it right in the middle of the Cobra price ranges. Of course I can see that by the machining of the head, this is more than a top cap screwed to a bottom slab and so I am sure the price will remain there. For you folks across the pond, I can see where you would be paying somewhere just south of $300 unless one of your places cuts a deal with Bullgoose.

The two testers are his MODS so you know how that will come out. I am waiting for the Claymore to arrive.

If you don't mind aluminum, the General (59$) and the Hawk (20$) should come out soon.
Let's not forget the Ikon/Shavecraft El Jefe. If the pricing on the X3 is any indicator, this one should also come in around $60. Slantman mentioned that Greg said it would be released "soon".
