I received shipment of the new iKon razors this afternoon and they are now available on my website.

The two new Bulldog razors are recreations of iKons iconic 2nd generation Bulldog razors and they are sure to be sweet shavers. Greg tuned the standard bar razor to be more aggressive than the original (although still a fairly mild razor). The Open Comb Version is an efficient shaver that will leave you smooth faced and impressed.

Thank you Ben. I may adopt one of the OC razors for myself. Cool

Good looking razors. The SB version looks very similar to the Feather AS, but I guess it's probably more aggressive.

I have the version these are based on (OC) and, for me at least, it's the perfect razor. These will probably be gone by Christmas, and rightfully so. In fact I'm having a hard time holding off on buying one!

Nice additions Phil.

How would you compare the shave between the Ikon OC and the FaTip?
I've owned and used the Muhle R41 and was too aggressive, also own a FaTip Grande and is an efficient slightly aggressive razor. Always read good things about the Ikon but was wondering the "efficiency and or aggressiveness".

Appreciate the feedback.

Thanks

I have not tried this particular iKon yet. I do however have a 2nd generation Bulldog in my rotation and it is one of my favorite shavers...I would characterize it as moderately aggressive.

Those look sweet, Phil, especially the open comb. If I didn't already have an OSS I'd be sorely tempted to pick up one of the open combs because while I love the open comb side of the OSS, for me the safety bar side leaves a lot to be desired.
