Looks like the SS General will finally be available from Colonial Razors this week. Received a notification via their newsletter that it will be available for sale on 10/15. Limited number, no more than 100 I believe. Basic knurling on the handle, should provide a good hold and feel in the hands...... I'm locked and loaded.  Sisi

Not bad.

The handle does look nice. Price is very competitive.

I've been on an ac blade razor kick. The last time I was using them I had a bout of skin irritation and so far about 8 days into a blade I'm doing great. 

I probably won't be buying one with so many different ones already. Unless it really stands out from the pack for some reason besides price? 100 units available doesn't sounds like very many.

And it is the aluminum version I'd like to try.  The Brass General even with a better handle has never been really enjoyable but an aluminum version with a handle that has some texture would be nice.

I was able to order one of the SS by 9:01
It may be a while until I post my impressions of it bc I just got a MR-SE (El Jefe) the other day and an Asylum Rx should be on the way.

Also just received a Rockwell 6s. I had to jump when I saw it on their site bc it's been sold out everywhere else.

Not a bad week for someone without RAD Smile Biggrin

Actually sold out in under 6 minutes. I was late and got on at 9:06 this morning. Hit Add to Cart and when I went to update, it said problem with your cart, item is no longer available. Only 100 of them available, it was going to happen. Oh well, just wait for the next run. Those that got in on it looking forward to your posts and reviews....

The brass General has become one of my go to's so couldn't pass up the SS especially at what I feel is a very good price. I was lucky enough to nab one...and looking forward to seeing how it compares.

I was on the site and had already checked out and paid before the clock reached 9:01am.... Already have a tracking # for the order also though there was a disclaimer on the site that said the 1st batch should ship within 1-3 days from original order.

I was among the first to have bought it, like the brass when it came out and the alu one. There is a difference between the alu and the brass, the brass being heavier, shaves a bit better.  If the difference between the shaves of the various different material Generals boils down th just weight,  (other things being equal), then the new SS will be slightly less efficient than the brass version at 130gr.

Did you get yours? Is the blade supposed to rest flush at the base of the pegs? I know feather pro lights will not work, but still can’t seem to get the blade to sit right.

Gentlemen,
I received my Colonial stainless steel two days, and shaved with it yesterday. It's ruggedly handsome. Yes, the blade sits flush in the pegs. The razor is a wee bit heavier than I expected, and like, I might add. Still, the shave is quite efficient. I think this one is a bit more aggressive the the aluminum version. I don't own the brass, so I can't say anything about it.

I was late to the party amigo. They sold out pretty quickly. But posts should be starting to come in shortly and furiously. Some one should be able to help you out with your situation....
