Hmm... intriguing. Nice to see it is stainless steel but I'm curious how this one is going to look. I've been trying to get my hands on the Stealth Slant but have missed it each time it has gone on sale. Too many products! Must... keep... wallet... closed. It's so difficult (but a little easier when one piece of kit costs ~$100 or more).

And apparently $75 wouldn't even cover the coating that was used on the razor. They go on sale at 2pm EST for those that are interested and it appears to be limited to a few dozen.

Unfortunately out of reach w/ my budget but it does look pretty sweet. Congrats to those who were able to snag one! Hopefully it works as well as it looks (and to me it looks awesome)!

Well done to everyone who got one and I hope you enjoy them but I have to be honest I'm really not up for this sitting perched by my PC refreshing madly to buy stuff any longer. I'm glad I managed to get a Stealth when I did but it was torture getting one. 
I much prefer just putting my name on a list and waiting for the email to tell me if I made the list or not. I don't mind waiting but all this not knowing if they are actually sold out or if more will go up or losing them at checkout and having to sit and not know if it's a pointless exercise or not to continue trying. Before you know it you've wasted an hour of your life you just won't get back.
 I understand there is a very limited supply of this particular razor and this is still a fair way to do it but I'm not really up for all this death by a 1000 clicks of the mouse malarkey any longer . Don't confuse this with jumping on the bandwagon with criticising IB or Joe, I've had many fruitful dealings with Joe and plenty of pleasant correspondence and I'm sure I'll continue to.
Maybe I'm just getting old and don't really have the patience or inclination any more, I don't know but enjoy all the same.

I couldn't have said it better myself.  There are many wonderful razors out there that one can order with ease and get delivered in the same week.  I don't see the point of waiting list or website refreshes for a razor, it makes little sense to me.  It's not like there isn't literally hundreds of razors out there to choose from and many of them shave as well or better as these "limited" razors.  I've used many of these "limited" razors via friends and while they are great razors they weren't great enough for me to wait months to get one.
