Looks nice. It's similar in appearance to a Standard Razor.

That was my thought as well when I saw it. I like the simple design.
It might be rather appealing to current Mongoose and/or Cobra owners.

That is a good looking razor!

And thanks for the heads up - I have both the Cobra and Mongoose and they take shaving to the next level.

So a new SE that uses the Artist Club blades is good news for everybody.

This will have to be a truly superb shaver to compete with the Mongoose, but I guess there's every chance it will be!

The Standard - Hone 15 handle look. Very nice. Another note according to their FB page the razors are made in their factory in China.

Here is a picture of the top cap and base plate disassembled. The top cap uses a stainless steel M5 x 0.8 mm set screw.

Welcome to the forum. I really like the pin setup for blade alignment. Do you know when these razors will be for sale?

Another razor designed in the USA and then made in China. We need to be making things that we design right here in the good old USA. Not trying to get political just stating a fact. And yes I have worked in machine shops and I know it can happen, and it would mean more jobs for American workers. Ok I'm off my soapbox now.
