Just a little heads up that I have a run of Rocnel Elite razors on the way. I will have these in both the standard blade gap as well as a more aggressive version. Here is a little sneak peak of the redesigned handle.

Only 101 of these razors were produced and, each razor will have a serial number from 1 to 101. Who will get the ominous 13? I hope to receive shipment next week if customs clearance goes smoothly.

Stop you're making me crazy, can't sleep wondering if the aggressive version could possibly shave even nicer then the other one  Rolleyes
(if only customs wouldn't add more then 1/3 of the price after import  Confused )

I am definitely looking forward to finding out if it shaves closer than the milder version. I hear you regarding the tariffs...it really hurts on more expensive items.

Yes -M is Moderate and A is aggressive. The blade gaps taken by themselves do not really tell the story but for those interested, they are 0.35 and 0.52

Good deal! Have you used one yet? Is the Moderate one similar to the 1.95 you had before?

Phil, I see the medium aggressive one on your website. Will you have another option for the aggressive one or will there be a drop down box to choose the option that you want when purchasing?

No -they have not been made available yet. I have to drive to Costa Mesa tomorrow to meet with engineers for the Rx project. I figured it is best to wait until Saturday for the release of the Elite razors.

The aggressive version will go up on my site later this evening but will not be available for purchase until Saturday morning.
