This is an iKon prototype which resembles a Rotbart Mond #15. The iKon appears bigger and is a 3 piece spindle type. What the final razor will look like is anyone's guess. If it follows previous iKon razors it will no doubt be all or part stainless steel.

Would be interesting to see Greg's take on a Cobra Classic.

I like the Cobra, but would appreciate a razor that could accept Feather AC blades, but with a round, knurled handle.

Though, since you need a spring-loaded clip to hold the head closed, perhaps a mix between a Cobra Classic and a Schick injector head would be more likely to work.

The Cobra doesn't use a spring loaded clip to hold the blade. It uses a simple hinge system. It would be nice to see an iKon type Cobra made out of stainless steel with a rounded knurled handle.

I approached Greg with this idea and at the time, he was not interested. Who knows though...he may be interested down the road. I think he may be reluctant to produce a razor with limited blade options and that is a sub-niche razor.

I do think it would be an excellent razor if he ever does decide to make it.

I think the next razor will be wood and can only be used with the Left hand..uses no blade and looks similar to a chop stick....put your names on the waiting list and take a nap..might be a while.

I'd love an all stainless GEM 1912! The patent is just over 100 years old, after all.

Gentlemen:
I like this iKon. It's a closed comb, I assume. I wanted to acquire the original closed comb Bulldog — at least I assume it was the Bulldog — but by the time I woke up the model was retired. Now this. I look forward to it's launching. Slantman, thank you for the information and the photo on the razor.

If it looks like a Rotbert probably shaves like one..which is quite good. Personally I think the Weber is hard to beat (if you can get one)...but you all know we will be standing in line to have the NEW MODEL ASAP !!!!

I guess that would be good for trimming the nose hairs. Biggrin

I like the looks of it ... unfortunately. I've been happily thinking that I have a lovely collection of most everything - certainly beyond what I use - and that I don't need to contemplate any new purchases. (Yeah, right!)

If this razor comes in stainless with no plating of any kind, I am in trouble. I have no idea how I could explain this purchase to my wife. It seems that the old and immature "easier to ask forgiveness than permission" would be in order.
Any ideas?
If it is plated, phew, not interested.

buy it for her as a surprise gift because you think she would enjoy shaving her legs with it, because she is always complaining when she has to do it everyday. Then when she tells you, you are crazy and she'll cut herself, tell her it is non-returnable and bingo.

Neh, too risky. What if she likes it? This trick is too easy.

Both are iKon prototypes in the above image.

Below pic shows how the head is lengthened to cover the blade tabs.

Actual production will have the handle thicker and longer , more along the lines of the classic iKon bulldog design.


2 Piece spindle type of assembly on this model.
