Finally was able to order this through Extrashaving (Turkey) A real pain paying as not all credit card company cards accepted through the international security system. Hopefully will have it in several weeks. I have no clue how it will shave but it is a stunner.

Jerry, it does look like a stunner.  I hope you get it quickly so you can post more photos.

Still thinking about ordering this but after getting the Gem razor. Interested to hear some reviews on this because I haven't seen any reviews on the stainless without titanium coating version of this. Kind of weird because I'm sure there are some in the wild.

Titanium coating is new so I don't think anybody has any of these razors yet to give their opinions. I did notice on instagram that Rocnel is coming out with a gold titanium razor that also looks fantastic.

You can be assured pictures are on their way as soon as I get this beauty. I am hoping they ship it DHL or some carrier like that so I can get it quickly.

Will the Rocnel Elite series be carried by any US vendors?

Phil at Bullgoose has exclusive rights to the Rocnel line in the US right now. I think I may have the only DE42 slide razor from them in the US and I had to jump through hoops to get it. Phil has gotten all of the rest of the Rocnel razors that I own for me except that one.

Phil posted today in another thread that he will be carrying the Elite razors and that they are on order.  They look great in either the plain stainless or the coated black titanium.

How does the coating perform over a period? Is it long lasting? Asking because this Ti coating seems to be a new fad and I wonder if anyone has had used such stuff earlier.

I have the titanium coated B&R Adjustable and have used it 3 times and no issues so far. My titanium coated SE-G razor will be here Monday and I will put it through it's paces this week.

Mine was finally shipped today from Turkey. I am thinking another two weeks before I have it. Mustafa from extrashaving.com told me it came from the factory and they were backed up.

Jerry, it shipped 12 days after you ordered it.  Apparently it was not in stock when you purchased it, which makes it a paid pre-order.  I don't know if you were made aware of that.  Hopefully it gets to you without undue delay.

I wouldn't say pre-order because if I had a clue it would take this long to ship regardless of the situation at their end I certainly would have not done it.The razor with shipping is not cheap and certainly not a bargain. However, I am looking forward to trying this razor and will give feedback thereafter.

Jerry, we're looking forward to your thoughts on the razor and appreciate your taking the lead on this by ordering from Turkey.  The rest of us will get the benefit of your review and have it easy ordering from BullGoose. Smile

Looking forward to hearing some reviews on this. The difficulty in ordering from extrashaving has been commented on several times. I think my DE42 took about a month to get. So glad Phil has taken over some of the headaches getting this beautiful razor line. Can't wait to hear about the Elite and then hopefully the SE50N will be coming soon too. All of my Rocnel razors have been stellar in fit, finish and shave quality. I continuously want whatever new razor they have. The only one I parted with was the DE-P because it was just too mild for my tastes. I have kept all of the others that I have purchased. For a while, Rocnel was using a site out of Spain called yourshaving.com and they were much easier to deal with then extrashaving. I don't know if that relationship deteriorated or what but as long as Phil keeps getting them at Bullgoose, I will be a happy camper!!
