I have a satin Mongoose that I am thinking of making "black". I don't know the name of this process but can somebody tell me where to send my razor? Is this process durable or will this finish quickly chip? Thank you.

Probably want to Cerakote it, as my understanding is its a durable black finish.  Relatively inexpensive I believe as well.  Fairly popular coating with Firearms I believe, might start there.

You can cerakote yourself at home.

Send it to Toby (Triad) or Jay (Delta Echo).
Both are Artisans (see their threads here on TSN for pics of their results) with excellent quality and experience; worth the expense IMO rather than messing about on your own.

Great to know that Toby (Triad) accepts cerakote job. Reason why I'm thinking of making my Mongoose black is because I want to pair it with Toby's handle. Thanks, Ravi Smile

I have been happy so far with the results of the Cerakote on the MOngoose head. I just got one this week and have had 2 shaves on it so far. The quality of the coating is great. It is even and smooth to the skin.

That is fine-looking shaver, and I like how many all-black shavers/razors there are around, these days! Biggrin

That mongoose looks awesome after coating it. Does cerakoting make a difference in the performance of the shave or is it just cosmetic? Because if it makes a difference, I think I know which razor i'll cerakote.

Balaji, I have a cerakoted Weber PH head and I find that the coating helped temper the aggressiveness of this razor head to the point where it is just right. I really enjoy it and it is a great shaver.  However, this might be a YMMV, thing. Shy

Yes. You will need the materials and spray gun like you would use for air brushing. You will then have to have it in your oven for a few hours. By the time you get what you need to do it would be cheaper to just send it to one of the vendors Ravi mentioned above. Good luck with it and post pics once you get it done!

I'm new to this forum but want to do this to my satin Mongoose.  How do I contact the guy that will do this for me?  I am also looking for some black handles for my Ikon OSS head, my Goodfella open comb black head and my future Mongoose black head.
Thanks in advance fo any help and contact info anyone can provide.

I bought my first mongoose head here (BST) and it was cerakoted black. It performs great, but I have no idea how it compared to the satin finishes or the polished. I won a polished goose and it will be shipped out today in my direction. I guess I will get to find out if there is a difference!
