This is the new Shavecraft iKon handle that is on the iKon site. Its a beautiful bulldog that is 80mm long 3.1" and is 316 stainless polished machined. For $32 + $5 USA shipping to me that is a bargain.

That's not a bad deal at all. Is this replacing the current options or a new addition?

I think its a new stand alone handle. The new slant razor will use the 85mm bulldog 2 handle. Both are fully machined and polished.

Beautiful. When will someone make a handle for a SE?

Rod Nip offered custom SE handles while ago. I am sure the artisans like Rudy Vey would be happy to make a custom one.
There was a thread about it at b&b and someone suggested a 10/32 set screw (available at hardware stores) to convert a DE handle to fit an SE. The photos look pretty good.

Not really needed, just thread a section of threaded rod or a long set screw into the handle so enough protrudes to tighten into the SE head.

The set screw works on the Gem Junior. Would need an 8/32 set screw for the rest of the Gem lineup. This really works well and converts the Junior to almost any handle.

That is a bargain, it can instantly transform any razor from a good shaver to a great fine shaver.

It appears to be the old style bulldog without the ikon logo at the base.?

For the small price differential, would you choose the Shavecraft over the Weber handle?
