Aaaaa
This has been the razor I have wanted since I first set eyes on Greg's website several months back (I have been traditional wet shaving for a little over 1.5 years)

The craftsmanship is high (very impressive polished finish, great job Greg!)

weight is excellent for me, and WOW!!! is it a heavy beast Wink

balance is towards the head, but I prefer that from any of my razors

I opened up my package from the Enabler (rcvd today) and set myself in motion to *Get My Shave On!*

so I did a quick, self-imposed cleaning(for anything I receive) of the razor, loaded up a Bolzano blade(2), and proceeded to get prepped for my shave.

This iKON S3S Bamboo was intuitive for me, because I normally use a bit of a shallow angle (razor angle lowered toward face). The weight allowed the Bolzano blade to glide easily through my stubble (one day's worth), using the OC side of the razor head.

Pass 2, I switched to the SB side of the razor head, and it maintained a smooth motion.

Pass 3, I went back to the OC side, and it was fantastic!

touch-up with the SB side in my sensitive areas (lip line around mouth, jawline, and mid-to-lower neck)

Seems like an excellent product so far!
Cool

Great review, but I think it's missing something... Tongue

ha!, I could have made it real boring by adding pictures of an item folks already *know* about Tongue
(too excited to get the shave going, didn't want to pull my son away from Wizrards 101)

There is a little confusion here. If you bought this from Bullgoose it can't be the S3S because he is sold out of those razors. Did you mean the two piece new model iKon 2PB Bamboo. What say youSmile

It was a B/S/T transaction and it is in fact the S3S Bamboo

I know I'm definitely no scholar on Ikon razors, but is anyone else as confused as I am when it comes to the model classifications? OSS, S3S, P2B, & I know there's more. Hmm

Makes about as much sense as 41r or 34c. LOL

I love the Bamboo handle. They look great. I'm glad you got a good shave with it. It's a wonderful razor.

True, for some reason I can remember #s better than letters; unless the letters make sense to me. If I knew what OSS, S3S, P2B stood for it might be easier. I'm a conceptual learner. Winky

2PB = 2 Piece Bamboo ???
Well in any case Greg's got us talking about that mysterious name Lightbulb
