    that is alled the mongoose, it is a brand new razor made in very small batches and have to be ordered months in advance, its kind of like the cobra. its completely made of stainless steel and is a cross between a straight and a safety it takes kai and feather pro blades so the head is wide it is heavy and i completed my first shave with it tonight head and face. it is surprisingly mild with a close as heck smooth shave with no pressure and no burn

    I've heard it being discribed this way by others.
    I disagree. It's simply a safety razor that uses artist club type blades.

    Gentlemen,

    Civility, please.

    The Mongoose is a new "single" edge safety razor. Everyone with whom I have spoken seems to like it, and some prefer it over the Cobra, it's older competitor. That the Mongoose uses the long single edge blades used in the Feather and similar straight razors with replaceable blades, the shave head is quite long and covers more space on the face. Some shavers like this feature. Although I do not have the Mongoose, I have used it and found it to be a good shaver. Some call it a moderately aggressive razor, although quite smooth.

    Curious to how well it maneuvers. I've not used it. While I like the blade choice I am wondering how well it does around the ears an under jaw line. Seems a bit bulky to me.

    It is maneuverable once you get the feel of the razor and the shave head dimensions, especially since the shave head is longer than that on the standard single edge or double edge safety razor.
