There here! Picked up the first batch of SE2 razors today.
Our goal is get them posted tonight so you can purchase the SE2 razor or the component of your choosing. However, it may take a day or so to get everything loaded. I have attached a few photos for your viewing pleasure.

Very interesting looking - will buy (of course) - I still use my ATT slant and R1 in a regular rotation and will never sell any of my ATT razors!

Stan given the aggression level is stated as 'mid aggressive' are we to understand this to be similar to the R plates, when the SE1 was more akin to the M plates? Or is efficiency as opposed to aggression the main difference between the two heads?

On my face the SE1 is a about half way between the M1 and R1. The SE2 is close but a touch below the R1. This will vary from person to person but the SE2 (open comb) is a bit more aggressive than the SE1.
It does shave very smoothly. The comb is not overly long since the blade is very narrow as compared to a DE blade. I believe it is a nice balance.
Hope this helps.

I ordered the SE2 head last night. Can't wait to get it. From what I know, the SE2 is the first open comb artist club razor that I have ever seen. So cool!!!!

Hi Stan one last question if you don't mind. In your pictures, in particular the first and last, the back of the head doesn't seem to be sitting flush with the base plate, is this due to not having a blade inside?

Yes. Good observation the Curved part or the "beak" of the head is where the blade would be. When a blade is loaded the spacing is symmetrical.
I have been using our aluminum razor prototype for a while. When the SE2 plate was ready to use I switched to solely using it.  After the first use I was reminded what a nice shave a SE razor will provide.
