If I had to wait in line again I would. This is a great shaver and now the only shave I want to use daily.

They shipped today. If I had to guess on an ETA, I would say a week to ten days.

Thank you!  Have a great weekend!!

I have been more than satisfied with all the glowing remarks for what appears to be a top notch razor, exceeding expectations in form and function.

Did a nighttime shave with a PolSilver in the Elite A and it was smooooooooooth!! I don’t know which blade I like more in this razor but tonight was an eye opener with the PolSilver. Another extremely close 2.5 pass BBS! The razor is just on another level and I really don’t want to put anything in the same class as my Wolfie WR2 1.25 but damn....this one is right there with it! I am a huge Rocnel fan but there was always something that would not allow me to put Murat in the same class as James from a razor manufacturing standpoint but this new Elite is in that same class. I just can’t deny it anymore! The finish is outstanding and the shave is just stupendous!! I’ll post a pic on Instagram.

We received a shipment of 41 Rocnel Elite razors today and they are now available for purchase. This shipment was made up entirely of the Mid Aggressive model. 

We are still expecting a shipment of a dozen or so Aggressive razors.

With Charcoal Goods, Asylum RX and Karve  razors in regular rotation I'm not a complete stranger to some of the higher end machined razors.

But results from my first shave with the new Rocnel Elite 2019 Medium Aggressive razor indicate it's combination of efficient shaving and gentle demeanor put it into a class of one as far as my collection goes.

Upon the Rocnel's earlier-than-scheduled Saturday afternoon arrival, inspired by the Elite 2019's flawless workmanship and muscular heft, I decided to immediately give it a workout on my 1-1/2 day stubble.

Software was a full suite of Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet and a fresh Persona Medical Prep blade was locked into the Rocnel.  This combination produced an epic a two-pass BBS with zero irritation or evem micro-abrasions per the post-shave AF splash.  

Having never achieved such a close shave in two passes I'm a smitten kitten for this Rocnel/Persona combination.

This AM, about 16 hours after yesterday's shave, I didn't need a shave but some hand applied La Toja shaving cream and the Rocnel/Persona combo got me back to near-BBS with a quick single pass.

Order processing by Bullgoose was typically prompt: shipping occurred less than 24 hours after my after-close-of-business July 2nd order and the USPS delivered it too my door on July 6th, two days ahead of schedule.  Complimentary shipping doesn't get better than that.

I’m relatively late to this party, having just purchased my Rocnel Elite 2019 this past week.
This razor is phenomenal, and keeps up with my other favored razors without a doubt. It makes the top tier list in my den.

Just took my mid aggressive Rocnel (S54) for its maiden voyage and, WOW, what a fine tool this is!  I cannot believe the combination of comfort and efficiency.  I think this will be among my favorites.

Looking forward to many fantastic shaves and thrilled to have acquired such a fine razor.

Just have to revive this thread.

I've been using my Rocnel Elite 2019 Aggressive a lot lately (including this morning). I'm surprised there's not more buzz around it. On my face, it is very smooth, with no tugging. Yet, it's as efficient as most of my blade-forward favorites. The other two razors I use that are similar are the Paradigm 17-4 and Wolfman WR1 .74 OC, which provide very good company.

Are you folks still enjoying your Elites as much as I am?

One of my favorites. So smooth and efficient. Only second to my Wolfman WR2 1.55

Still one of my absolute favorites but just got eclipsed by the new Rocnel 2019 Sailor Adjustable! I am a huge Rocnel (Murat) fan and he keeps outdoing himself!!

Love my rocnel also!
I find the 2019 A similar in efficiency to my 1.55 wr2, which is insane! 

@rawfox1 would you agree with that? (how do you tag someone here?)

I will do a comparison shave. From memory it's close. 1.55 might be a slight smoother and efficient but very close

Yup, that's pretty much how I remember it also, which is saying a lot for the Rocnel!
