Got my Alumigoose in today. It really looks cool. Only got the head so I put it on a Sabi handle. I can't wait to try it on Tuesday.

I love these Feather Artist Club blades. To me they are the sharpest blades and with this razor very stiff also. I had a stainless steel Mongoose last year which I ended up selling.

Why'd you sell the Stainless version?

I can get a good shave from all my razors. Some feel more aggressive than others but the end result is the same for me. So I found the Mongoose very nice but I did not feel it was special. I happen to mention that in one of the forums one day and someone kept bugging me to sell it to him. So I finally gave in one day and sold it. I probably should not have.
I think I am going to enjoy it more this time around. I was getting bored with all of my other razors.

I had my first shave with the Alumigoose. It shaved very nicely as expected. Like I said yesterday, I had a stainless steel model last year (batch 2) and although I liked it I was not overly impressed with it. But since then I have been using a lot of vintage SE razors and I now look at the Mongoose with a different perspective. Before I got this one I was using my Ever-Ready 1914 razor. I do enjoy shaving with the 1914 but I have to say the Mongoose is much smoother. The GEM blades seem a bit rough the first couple of shaves. While I find the Feather Pros to be a very smooth blade.
In fact I am really considering selling or PIFing all but one DE razor and all but one vintage SE razor that I own. I think the Mongoose will be my daily driver from now on.
I just like those blades.  BTW I see no difference in the way the Alumigoose shaves compared to the stainless steel model.

Thanks for the report Ron. I think I prefer my AlumiGoose to the Stainless version as well. It will most likely be an easy decision once I have a custom aluminum handle to pair with it.

I'm hoping I'll like the Aluminium version better too. 

I have an aluminium UFO handle waiting and hopefully another from Toby soon.

The Goose I used had a short, heavy handle that threw the balance and control off for me. I didn't have it long enough to dial-in the proper blade, either. Talk about a stacked deck. I'll look forward to an all-alum, long handle version, with plenty of blade choices at hand. I'd like for this to work.

I ended up selling both my Stainless and Aluminum versions cause while I loved the blades and they did a great job on my face, I couldnt ever get a really good shave on my neck and head. My guess is that due to the longer head design it couldnt make great contact with where I needed it. But I know others get great shaves from them ... so maybe it was just me.
