I just got my Ikon value pack in.

Have yet to shave with it, but it sure looks purdy Blush

Both handles are the new Bulldog II 85 mm length models with deeper knurlings.

Very well made satin finished parts, the matte Bulldogg II 85 mm handle is flawless, just like my polished shiny Bulldog II handle is with my R89 head mounted Biggrin

I like both matte and polished finish - I just prefer a matte handle to go with a matte head and vice versa Smile

I have tried looking to get an extra top cap to go with the head plate of choice - if I want one of my upcoming UFO handles in matte finish to go with one of the 3 head plates from the Ikon - but no luck on the Ikon webshop Sad

Where do you guys order extra parts, if you want to rock 2 or 3 head plates and miss the top cap........ Huh

Hope you like the pics Cool

Looking forward to reading your opinion on each base plate Claus. My favourite is the OC, but very closely followed by the SB. I have the OSS too (dual personality), but it's too mild for my taste...

Mine arrived today. I'll be giving it a go this week and draw some conclusions.

Looks nice, the handle size and weight is perfect.

Yeah I'll snap some more pics if you want me to, but it fits perfectly. I'll get a close up shot of the underside of the head and a shot with the blade loaded as well. I gave it a test run earlier today and it worked well. I got my OC today and thanks to a fellow member, I have a SB on the way as well.

The new iKon standard base plate is a great shaver.
