I'm anxious to buy a modern SE that uses the Feather style blades.  There seem to be a lot currently out or coming soon--the list I know of includes:
ATT SE1
Asylum Rx
Mongoose (and Alumigoose)
Rocnel SE50 (not sure if it's available to buy)
RozoRock Hawk (not out, yet)
Colonial General

What am I missing?  For people who have used one or more of these, which ones are getting the most love/best reviews?

King Cobra and Classic Cobra are recent, but not in stock.

There is the Claymore from Scotland, which is getting good reviews and is attractively priced, also the Rocnel SE50 from Turkey.

Of the ones I've tried (Mongoose, Alumigoose, SE1, General, Cobra Classic), I like the SE1, although I like the General nearly as much and it definitely packs the most bang for the buck. Both have gotten mostly good reviews.

Supply Provision also has the Single Edge (poor name) but I have not tried it yet.  I was a backer and I'm waiting for a V2.

The bad thing is that only a few of them are innovative. Some are just copies of other company models. We have to consider that.

This is an excellent point

The Supply Provision Single Edge looks really interesting--but at 5 ounces that's a monster.  I'll be on the look out for reviews.  The El Jefe really intrigues me, especially at a bargain price in relation to the ATT SE1 or Asylum RX.  I'm going to have to read some reviews on the Rocnel--it's a unique design, but the head seems awfully big for such a small blade.

It feels like the SE is on the verge of rebirth--I'm anxious for many of these to actually become available for purchase!  If there are more, keep them coming--I'm having fun looking all of these up.

I'd like to see someone make a new version of this style razor. What hasn't this happened already? I think this is an untapped market.

Yep, if someone would make EXACT reproductions of the square comb 1924, and the 1914 there would be no need for these new odd blade wonders!  Thumbsup

I really like my Ever Ready 1912.  I've thought of adding more variations to my collection.

The 1912 is a great razor, get a round comb 1924, it's just a little more aggressive than the '12, and it's the most common.  Thumbsup

I just wish someone would make a modern SE similar to any of the old GEMs, Ever Ready or Star razors that accepts the old school SE blades. I love my DEs and the modern SEs, however I do think the old ASR razors deliver some of the most comfortable and mild yet efficient shaves.....incredibly underrated!!

I think there may be a few designs in the works. One of the issues is the lack of blade choices.

Would these designs allow for a GEM blade?
