Pictures to follow. I just got in my iKon Bulldog 11 handle from the enabler. A really beautiful and functional handle that Greg has created. I have not used it yet but will do so Saturday morning. It fits the Tradere OC and Cadet OC like a glove so which one shall I use first? I am going with the Tradere. The bulldog 11 is actually heavier then the Tradere handle and the knurling is a little bit deeper so grip wise it should work with no problems.

Stay tunedSmile

Jerry, did Greg etch his iKon name on the bottom of the handle? I am hoping it is just a plane jane polished bottom.

Yes the iKon logo is on the bottom of the handle. The Tradere has none.

While we are talking about Ikon i saw they have some brushes for sale on their website, the stainless brush would look good with that bulldog handle!!

Did my first shave using this combination of head and handle and paired with a Polsilver Super Iridium blade for a BBS. Wonderful grip throughout the shave. No slippage even when wet.
