The very latest from Classic Shaving is there is no re-stock date for either of these razors. For those that already have these razors you are the lucky few. For me it's on to the GooseSmile

And you may actually be better off with the Goose, shaving-wise... at least that's what I've been hearing from experienced shavers. I've yet to receive mine, though... waiting on the 2nd batch! Biggrin

I can get a great shave from either of the Cobras or the Mongoose, but the Mongoose is the better razor. It has far superior fit and finish and some advantage as far as holding the blade more rigid. If you can get the Mongoose I would not look back. I am invested in both so I do like both but the Mongoose is better and costs less.

I have a Cobra Classic and I tried the King but I'm looking forward to the Mongoose and also the Huntlee.

I enjoy my Cobra Classic and I have the King Cobra. The handle on the KC is a fail for me. I'm getting one of Rafael's Cobra UFO handles so I'm hoping that fixes the long handle problem on the KC for me. If not for the UFO handle, I would probably sell my KC.

I'm also on the 2nd batch list for the Mongoose (head only).

I'm confused - was there ever another batch of the King Cobra released? I've been waiting since I missed out on the last one I know of in June(ish).

There have been no further Cobra releases since June, 2014 ... just repeated delays.

No use speculating when the KC & CS will be released for sale. As of yesterday they stopped giving updated release dates. I am just repeating what I have read on their website.

Same for me. The Cobra Classic is my everyday razor. I own the King Cobra, but I wish the handle was better. Looking to catch the next round of UFO King Cobra handles. Based on the reviews the Mongoose sounds like a winner.

Really surprised Classic Shaving never offered a second batch of the King Cobra since it sold out relatively quick. I was able to get notified of their first offering by signing up to their email alerts and newsletter. I never got notified via email alerts, but read about their availability through the newsletter.
