Interesting. Just from the picture, the ones in the front look to be Zamak for sure, probably the EJ89 (or clone) head, but the two in back...

If I am correct, they must use the EJ/Muhle closed comb head. Nice handles, but nothing special in my opinion.

The third one, and maybe the fourth one from the front look to be machined. They could be prototypes, however. Simpson is going to focus on the beauty of the handle.

Then again, it could be a trick of light that make the corners look sharper than they really are.

Of course, what would these forums be without baseless speculation.

The handles do look nice, in typical Simpsons fashion.

And the pricing will probably be in Simpsons style...

All of the heads look the same to me.

They look quite elegant.  I would definitely like to see a Simpson stainless DE.

My "guess" is that all four heads a re the same and that only the handles are different. And I expect the heads are NOT machined.

Only time and more information will reveal the truth.
