That's one of a series of teaser pictures posted on the Edwin Jagger Twitter account.  The only info one can glean is that it comes with a choice of handles, has a safety bar rather than open comb  and it appears to be MIM (like a Feather AS-D2) rather than machined.  I think they might have stated it was stainless but I could be wrong about that.

I totally agree, specially with this above.
I like colorful handles.
Bright color reminds me anodized aluminum, which I love.

BTW, that mild curvy geometry of the head I find very pleasant.
Both aesthetically and functionally.
I'm teased!!

II truly hope It'll NOT be another stainless steel hammer.
I find alum alloys (specially 7075!!) so more efficient.

They have been planning a stainless razor for some time so this must be it. The sales reps were not allowed to discuss it, apart from saying it's in the works.

I am also hoping for a hollow handle version like their standard razors, a solid handle would be to heavy for me.

Different color handles all stainless steel. Someone on another forum confirmed with EJ that they are stainless steel.

Not all models.
Full colored are anodized aluminum.

I think the new 3ONE6 is a good answer to the Muhle Rocca.

Muhle also has the more economical series (Hexagon) in aluminum.

I hope the prices will be in line.
I say:
steel / steel € 80-100
steel / aluminum € 60-80

That head design appear to once again leave a lot of the blade unsupported, which leads to blade chatter and rougher shaves.  Timeless and Wolfman got it right.  This, in my opinion, is beautiful but to me has a fairly major design flaw.

In a direct challenge, it rarely happens that the contenders are the same.
This is the case of the comparison between Edwin Jagger 3ONE6 and Yaqi Cobbled (formally Maggard Razors V3A).
Effectiveness, comfort, ease, speed, intuitiveness: all excellent, on par.
English has its beauty, Chinese its economy.
So if you want to stay concrete, Cobbled has a better q/p ratio.

Wow! Talk about an array of choices. I'm still happy with my knurled one. I've hung onto it for some time now even though it is not in my rotation. Good looking razor, especially for the price.

This is a nice stainless steel razor from Edwin Jagger. I prefer using it to the original, as it’s a little more efficient. I also really like the studs used in the top cap because it aligns and centers the blade.

[Image: xUPMyjt.jpg]I just tried the 3one6 with Aluminium handle and a Gillette platinum blade.
Angle easily found and not fussy. Weight and handling very good. Great match with this blade.
I liked it a lot. Other blades will be interesting.
