As you know, Executive shaving received a batch of CC and KC early in the week, of course these were sold out super fast, 1 minutes for the CC and one day for the KC.
Too fast for me ... but a friend of me just receive his KC ( 195£+shipping) and here is some pictures of it.

As you can see, it's a poor poor POOR manufacturing and the most incredible is that he can't close the head when a blade inside ... of course he will ask a refund but seriously ? where is the quality control ??  just a shame selling things like that to a customer !

Are these from Classic Shaving or a knock off. The razor looks terrible.

This is the original brand new KC manufactured by classic shaving and sold by an UK retailer

Damn...I would definitely have thought that was a knock off. A bad knock off at that. I'd be pissed.

Wow, I would think a knock off would even look better than that

Here's hoping this is just a razor that just slipped through QC.

There's utterly no way that this could have slipped through any visual inspection as all the flaws were highlighted during polishing of the plating. All Cobras have flaws, but his is a new low. Regarding quality control? Let's just say that ISO 9000 is not being implemented where the Cobras are being manufactured. The safety bar of this Cobra belongs in the trash and not on this razor. Sad.

It is interesting that Classic Shaving has not had these in stock for quite some time, and yet a vendor in the UK has them.  Total speculation, but perhaps these were the ones that Classic Shaving rejected last time which resulted in a very long stocking delay at Classic Shaving.  If this total speculation is true, who knows how these got into another vendor's hands.

I blame the vendor as well as the manufacturer for missing this. How hard would it have been for Executive Shaving to open the box and inspector the razor for flaws. Instead they ignored that process and just shipped it out as is.

They must have found them in a trash bin somewhere.

Lucky for me I'm currently exploring old SE's and have a Mongoose, that kept me from paying that high price. Would have been really p*ssed if I received the above.

That's awful.  I too blame both the manufacturer and vendor.  No way this should have been shipped out.
