Another nice email sent from someone who purchased an iKon product from one of the many worldwide vendors who carry my products:

Cool

Dear iKon Producers:
Recently I bought my first iKon DE razor (model H20AA0), $150.00 from
Pasteur Pharmacy in NYC (53 East 34th. Street), after returning a brand new
Feather Stainless Steel DE Razor ($167.00) because it had almost no
effective blade exposure. Classic Shaving Co. reluctantly accepted it and
gave me a full refund because they claimed one of their Wholesalers had
recently reported similar problems with other Feather Stainless Steel DE
Razors.
I only use Feather Stainless DE Blades.
Conversely, your iKon DE Stainless Razor has been giving me outstanding
shaves! After lathering my face with a badger brush + shave block cream I
first use the closed side of your razor. After a second lathering, I use
the open comb side with perfect results each time! Your craftsmanship is
truly astonishing. I will be recommending your products, with no
reservations whatsoever, to friends, colleagues and clients. Once again,
thank you very much for creating such a fine instrument.
Most cordially,
Dr. Fred ******r [Office: 973: 5**-4***; 54 Main Street; Suite 202; Su********,
NJ 07****)

I'm glad to see that there are vendors left in the world who are dedicated to making a fine product that is built to LAST and also that there are customers who still truly appreciate fine value.

Congratulations on this fine feedback!

Having recently purchased my own iKon razor (the OSS)I fully agree to the quality of both the design of the razor and the effectiveness and comfort of the shave.

As a vendor I'm also very happy to sell iKon razors across Europe. I have not come across any customer not satisfied with his purchase of an iKon razor.

Thanks for sharing Greg! Always nice to read positive feedback from a happy customer.

I have to post this in this thread. Tonight, I emailed Greg asking about an iKon end for a Merkur Progress. He told me he didn't make them anymore but he'd check and see if he had one Less than 20 minutes later, he not only found one, but took pics and I bought it for a great deal. This is "Doing it Right" and I appreciate it. Thank you so much Greg. I'm an iKon fan for life!!

Awesome Dave!
I'm jealous Biggrin , I know after using my Progress LH for only four shaves, that I will indeed want it modified with a better bottom-piece.

I do hope it works out for you Dave!

but if it is designed for the Progress LH, I will gladly ask what compensation you would want for it Blush

Greg done you right!!!
Cheers for iKON Biggrin

Yeah I'm going to have to buy a LH Progress to use it, but it will be well worth it I'd say.

Very happy with Ikon products. Have the Bulldog handle and just purchased second hand a classic handle. Recently traded away an OSS and a S3S after stumbling upon a brand new Modern at a cutlery store in Southern California. Turned some other shave brothers on to a stock of Moderns they still had. (everyone was giddy, including myself) The store is probably wondering what happened. They now have one left after having six a month ago. I prefer the closed comb which the Modern provides and am looking for the next Ikon that has them or a slant. Great products, great service.

I'm with Dr. Fred... fantastic products, all crafted meticulously. You'll have to pry my S3S from my cold dead hands!

Can't wait to see what comes next.
