I ordered on of these from Ikon, waited for a 3 day growth period and had one of the best and smooooothest shaves ever. This is "an amazing piece of kit". And the smoothness was not due just to having a 3-day growth. I shaved the next day with it and loved it. This is not aggressive as most say. I used a GSB the first run and an Israeli Persona the second shave. Very impressed - and i came with one of the best handles in the game as well - the Ikon Bulldog.
