    This is actually a very nice razor. I definitely prefer it over the Cobra without question. It is a heavy razor, but it takes no time to get used to it. It maneuvers well and the shaves are top notch!

    Have fun.

    Right you are, Lynn. The Mongoose is a fine razor, and it takes my vote, too, over the Cobra. I don't own the Mongoose, as I noted earlier, nor the Cobra, although I have tried both, and all this conversation compels me to break down and order the Mongoose.

    I believe I read on another forum that you have to order one through BullGoose Shaving Supplies - Traditional Wetshaving, Razors, Brushes and Men's Grooming by emailing them.

    They have a facebook page, I ordered mine direct from email. They have open comb, slants and other stuff in the works so you might want to hold off if you like those options. I ordeded mine in october and got it early Jan.

    I would hold off for sure until they put out a longer and perhaps thinner handle...I might hold off forever if I cannot afford to give up an arm and a leg.

    Yea, pretty well my take on all the new stainless steel DE/SE razors, can't afford/want to give up an arm and a leg. They sure are nice looking though.

    Agree....precision & aesthetics...what could be wrong with that? And I have used Feather Blades in my short handled Merkur Progress..I dropped it once and it has a small chip (which has no effect on it's shaving qualities....but I have a ready made excuse to replace it if I really need one).

    Yea, I could think up any number of excuses/reasons to buy a new razor but none would be rational I'm afraid.

    Just a friendly warning: I think the word "rational" can get you banned from the site.
