iKon Custom Made Safety Razors

Hello, like many of you I'm a fellow Wet Shaving enthusiast

After my serious case of RAD buying and trying as many razors as possible I decided what I wanted did not exist...

So I created my own safety razor



called "The iKon"


quality and design wise there is nothing else like this being made anywhere, period.

The few pieces that have been made so far and received by their new owners have gotten rave reviews

Each piece is custom made in all stainless steel - not brass that has been plated


My introductory price is $39 for a complete razor - not just the handle.

If you would like just a handle w/o a custom made iKon head that is also possible as the threading will fit most Old or New Gillette or Merkur Heads - just PM or email me.


My website www.ikonrazors.com will be up and running soon with a full line of custom razors and custom made progress knobs - all in solid stainless steel and very competitively priced


The open comb heads in solid stainless steel are technically very hard to make and will last a lifetime w/o any plating loss or discoloring


A few different handle types are available - they are special sharp diamond knurled and offer the best grip of any handle on the market




Please see pics and PM me with any questions or if you wish to order one.


They are masterpieces

Welcome aboard. Very nice looking razors, can you make one gold plated.

Welcome Pureslab!

What was it about existing razors that you felt was not right for you, such that you made something unique?

I am in the market for a mild razor. How mild is your iKon? About the same as a Merkur or more mild than that?

You've got my attention, as I really like three-piece razors. Your prices are also very attractive.

My questions are the following:

1. Do these have the blade laid directly upon the comb or is it raised slightly above it?

2. Are these mild, moderate, or aggressive shavers? Can you compare them to any commonly known razors in this respect?

3. Do you offer any shorter handles (about the same length as a thick-handled Tech or a Super Speed)?

Thanks!

Sure can - will use a 5 micron plating , dipped 5 times in 18kt gold. Can do the same in real silver as well.


I personally like the natural finish of stainless steel but because these are custom pieces there are plenty of options available

I like a heavy razor , but did not like the future or vision

Also like stainless steel opposed to brass that has been plated - that is just a cheap way to mass produce something.


I also wanted a grip that literally stuck to your hand and my unique sharp diamond knurling process does - hard to describe this how this grips but it is unbelievable

this is semi aggressive shaver

it lays very flat on the comb

2. Are these mild, moderate, or aggressive shavers? Can you compare them to any commonly known razors in this respect?

slightly aggressive but smooth as there are no large gap issues with the blade exposure

3. Do you offer any shorter handles (about the same length as a thick-handled Tech or a Super Speed)?


sure do , just did not post any pics yet - will do a ALL STAINLESS STEEL bulldog style handle and many other styles


Thanks!

with the handles pictured - I have the slim classic handle which is the thinner handle - approx 80 grams with the iKon open comb head


The large handle is called my "extended tech" and that is 100 grams with the head attached ImageImage

Hi guys,

I already received Greg(Pureslab) iKon razor with the long handle tech(pix 3). I can attest to the quality of this razor. This is the best razor and gives the best shave that I have ever had. I have been posting my results in this forum as SOTD. The weight of this razor is approx 3.3 oz and length is 4". The grip is unbelievable as the knurling is very deep. You can buy from iKon razors with confidence. Also who else is building razors from scratch? Finally a razor made from 100% stainless steel.

Is there a price option for gold? And plated?

Also, if it were plated I assume the impression of the tack of the thread would be hidden on the head?

Nice razor, BTW....

I believe Greg from iKon razors says he can do gold,silver,etc with 5 micron plating to any razor. I am sure the price will be higher. He also said to look out for his new website(not online yet) ikonrazors.com

Ten years since I bought my ikon "extended tech" handle from Greg (Pureslab). It's long out of production, and it'll be among the heirloom razor stuff long after my shaving days are over.
