I want to thank Bullgoose Shaving for excellent service. I received my Ikon 101 head and he threw in a pack of Astra SPs and a Bullgoose ink pen. This was my first purchase from Bullgoose and it won't be my last. 

I am not going to review the razor since there is a 101 on the razor tour from another member right now that is getting plenty of reviews. However, I can safely say that after only one shave the Ikon 101 will be my new every day shaver. I used the exact same technique that I use with my EJ DE89 and the shave was extremely smooth. I did a 3 pass shave with a Kai blade and Tim's Soap and the razor glided over my skin like butter, cutting every hair in its path. This is precisely what I wanted from a new razor as I did not want to have to change my technique to adapt. Unfortunately that was not the case with the Standard Razors razor I owned previously, which I believe could have been a great razor for me too had I learned to shave with it. I have learned that just because my technique is good with one razor does not mean it will be with other razors.

Thanks. I just wish I didn't wait so long to try Ikon. I always thought the heads would be light too but this thing has a nice weight to it.

I have the ikon tech. Compared to other aluminum razors it is heavier. Glad you like it.

Glad you are enjoying! I have been using the SC101 all week too. Solid shaver and fairly efficient.

Do you find you like one side more than the other? Is one more efficient? I find each similar but actually have found the SB side to be slightly more efficient for my beard and start my first pass with it.

Congrats on the first iKon!

The SB side is definitely more efficient.  At least it is for me.

I continually changed sides the same as I do any other DE and I did indeed find the SB slightly more efficient and a bit smoother as well. Both are very smooth and forgiving though.

Does Ikon offer the a solid bar DE that is the same design as the 101?

I like more the SB side too. I don't think the Ikon has a razor with SB side smoother like #101. I have the SB in DLC, B1 and Teflon, and the Tech SB to compare.

I find the Ikon 102 to be the smoothest one. Shy

Thank you, I didn't think there was one.
