Had mine for around a month now and couldn't be happier. So much so that I bought a second, although this has been passed on to a friend to enjoy.
No issues with the handle which is where most criticism appears to be aimed at. It's different, and in my opinion, in a good way. It's a fabulous shaver.....I even sold my Wolfman WR2 after acquiring it.

A 'wetshaving' friend loaned me his Carbon - and I loved the 3 shaves I had with it. I enjoy blade forward/positive exposure razors and Carbon didn't disappoint at all. I find it extremely smooth, fairly efficient razor that has noticeable feedback (audible and blade feel). I find it somewhat similar to Charcoal Goods Lvl-2, but maybe a bit more efficient/aggressive. I had no trouble shaving a 3 days growth (and my regular every day shaves).

I also did not mind the handle, even though from the looks of it I thought it was ridiculous. While I have not sold my WR-2 1.15, I also think Carbon is a better razor than the two WR-2 I tried (0.95 and 1.15). I think Carbon is equal/more efficient, smoother and provides more feedback (which is my preference).

Yes, definitely a daily use razor here. Blade selection plays a role too. I prefer Gillette platinum blue box ones here.

My other preferred razors; Wolfman WR1 .61 .74, WR2 1.15, BBS-1, CG lvl2, Rocnel Elite A, Merkur 37C.

For me, the Carbon may be slightly too aggressive for everyday shaving.  My other razors include a Wolfman .61, Pils, EJ 3ONE6, Wolfman Guerrilla aluminum.  I would also rank the Wolfman .61 as possibly slightly too aggressive for everyday shaving.  Everyone is different.

If I want a really close shave, the Carbon is my first choice.  The Wolfman and Pils a close second.

The Cx is most certainly a daily shaver for me. I tend to use Polsilvers and Feathers and whilst both give a close shave, it's not a raw face feeling afterwards.
Other razors are now the Nodachi and Charcoal Goods Lvls 2 and 3. The first and latter are both more aggressive than the Cx, ther lvl 2 being the closest in comparison.

I really do not like the handle.
And the head reminds me the Gillette Fat Handle Hybrid.

This looks like very a nice razor (I like the handle too) but I’m not sure if would ever replace my Wolfman... I’ll wait for more reviews.

I like my Carbon, but I’m not a fan of the handle. He just released 2 new handles that look better though.

Ti and R2 SS handles arrived last evening.
They are visually more striking compared the the original R1 SS handle, which continues to perform very well for me.
The new handles are well finished and the complete razors are just as well balanced as the original.
I used the Ti handle last shave; this Carbon razor continues to impress. It’s superb.

My titanium arrived also - just as I was ready to declare the original Cx 316 handle my current favorite.
