I agree with Gary that it would be fun to try it but not at $300 plus $28 for blades. Doug

Re: Mongoose -- Stainless Steel SE Razor

Gary, your commentary is wonderful to read for me. Since I had the Cobra and sold it after a major nick with the same experience as you, the no fear remark was perfect.

Re: Once more unto the breach: Floris No. 89 Soap

The Floris soap in a wooden bowl from Tieste is one of my favorites. It has a wonderful scent and the lather is among the best. Thanks for the review and comparison.

Re: WTT: My Blades for Voskhods

Morning Ed, sure I'll send a pack, cant remember if they are 5 or 10 per pack but it will give you an idea how they work in several different razors. Send your mailing address and I will get them in the mail. Doug

Re: Need a more aggressive razor

Gary has a great point. A setting of 2 or 3 worked best on my Futur and Fatboy after switching from a '40's SS. The Red Tip TTO is another alternative although not as good as the adjustables which will allow choice as technique changes.

Re: Huntlee Katana Teaser Video

Phil, excellent design and presentation; obviously, the Huntlee is in competition with the Cobra. Will it be less aggressive than the Cobra or more forgiving like a Paul Revere injector?
