Paradigm Diamondback (Formerly Javelin)

Not sure if anyone's posted about this razor (it's not released yet)
But thought I would let anyone know who is interested. Soon be released the Paradigm shaveware "Javelin" DE safety razor.

It is reputed to be a more efficient offering and the picture below is a prototype and handle may possibly change.
It is polished 303 SS AFAIK.

When it's available as head only and in OC I'll start getting interested.... 112g is too heavy for me - needs to be under 100g. I don't want to accumulate handles I don't use - I only really use titanium handles these days.

Forum GOD!
Doubt it, small quantities, higher cost, so far anyway
It was the use of the 303 stainless steel which triggered that idea. Thinking back I believe he’s used stainless steel for prototype’s so I guess the official ones will be made in titanium with a run of 10, circa $400?

Rasatura Bagnata

My humble opinion? More efficient then for instance a CG level 3 while still feeling rather mild (if you use a "normal" angle the shave is less comfortable, steep works a lot better at least for me).
I have not shaved with a CG razor, but from what I've read the Lvl 3 is fairly aggressive. For the Javelin to shave at that level of aggression and still be mild, that says something. When will this razor be available?
