Anybody our there have any experience with this razor? My interest has been piqued. I like the level of aggression of my red tip and super adjustable on 3/4. Is this Tech comparable to one of those? Based on product descriptions I've read it seems quite potent. But doesn't it look so righteous? (the pic isn't mine. I will remove it at the mods' request)

I have a Shavecraft Tech but have not used it yet. It compares to the iKon Standard in aggression which I have used many times. On the iKon razor scale the Tech is listed as a 4 out of a possible 5.  It's rated as their most aggressive razor.

Thanks for your thoughts, gents. The razor's tame appearance (it's so Tech-like - plus, name recognition is messing with my brain) is quite appealing, and that groovy handle is calling my name. I hear it whispering to me. "chaz... Chaz..." However based on what you say, truth be told, I have reservations about getting involved with a highly aggressive razor. My only frame of reference is with a super adjustable set on 7. I never went past that (didn't want to press my luck. otoh, now that my technique has improved I should try to max it out). Would I be looking at that kind of aggression?

I'm curious about the new ShaveCraft Tech too. I've got an all stainless iKon standard from a few years back and it is mighty aggressive. I would rate it in the same range as a FaTip or an R41 -- somewhere in there anyway.

I have to say to the OP that, if you feel you've got good razor technique and a light touch, you should try an aggressive razor -- the concentration and close attention that they require will give you truly phenomenal shaves. I find I still enjoy milder razors (34C & etc.) but for the best shave, and a bit of a fun challenge, the beasts cannot be beat!

My two cents

Thanks for the encouragement! I'd love to try one down the road. First, i must practice with the adjustable maxed.

I just finished my first shave with it and am very impressed!  

I would say that it is more efficient than the Ikon Standard and (at least on the initial shave), every bit as smooth.  Using little pressure I had one of the best 2 pass shaves I've had in a long time.  For the price its fantastic.  A definite keeper for me!
