Without resorting to swear words like a common street trollop I have no idea how to express the feelings I have about this appalling betrayal!

 
I have a Mongoose razor from the end of batch 1.  I like it because with Feather Pro’s it is not very aggressive but good and with Feather Supers it is an aggressive, close shaver.
 
So my lady picked up a razor and showed me.  She was proud of it but it was light, plasticy and something I had seen before.  None of this makes it a bad razor.  But I gave her my Mongoose with my safe Feather Pro’s and now she has confiscated it.
 
I probably would not mind as there are several razors now on the market that I would like to try BUT I have over 200 Feather Super’s in my stash which from my understanding will be too aggressive for most.
 
Also I have to find her a longer handle for the Mongoose!  [img=21x21]data:image/png;base64,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[/img]

Thank you.  I gave up fighting over this stuff a long time ago.   At least she understands wet shaving now. Undecided

I think it's great. When we were first married, the only razors available were DE's, but when carts came out my wife started using them and I've never been able to get her to try anything else. I would love to have her use a better razor, blade, and soap, but she thinks my interest in shaving is silly. (I will admit that the amount of gear I own is probably silly, but silly is fun).

Thank you guys.  I am glad she tried and am glad she likes it.  I do like the razor but also understand that it is not worth the grief if she wants it.

Now to find another razor. Biggrin

If you like your Mongoose, why not just buy another one?

OK, OK, that would be too easy. Have you tried the AlumiGoose 2? Great razor, and mild enough to use with Pro Supers. Only downside is that she may want that one, too. Biggrin

Have you ever tried the general of colonialrazors? This is for me the best SE tested even though I have not tested mongoose

From my understanding each batch is a little different.  I like the batch 1 because I can use supers in it, I am not sure if I will get a similar shave with supers in the current version.

I am looking at the Alumigoose. Smile

I just got the Mongoose B2 stainless and it's the best SE I've used (asylum RX, jefe, black hawk, ATT se1). IMHO

I've also got the Mongoose batch 2 and I equate it with the 2011 Muhle R-41 for aggressiveness. That is a good thing if I'm in the mood for it. OTOH, the ATT SE-1 is a gentler SE on my particular face/neck. My guess is if you tried one of those your lady would take that and give back the Mongoose.
