    Yes I'll put it trough its paces the moment it arrives and report.

    I read the review by darkbulb just before receiving mine and I was somewhat worried if I spend a lot of money on something that I might not like, let's just say that I love mine a whole lot after using it for two weeks (just bought another one for a good friend). I've had the original cobra, king cobra, mongooses, att se1 to compare. Rx is imho the best of the lot. YMMV of course.

    YMMV, DarkuBulb is a respected reviewer in several forums, but he test razors on his own his skin, not ours. His vast experience is a benefit to all of us. Now you know like me who I have strong stubble that if DarkBulb says it's mild, it's never going to shave me. If he says it's aggressive but smooth, then it's my razor.
    With all due respect.

    The razor has grown on me. I still prefer the KC as far as pure shaving result goes though. It'd be terrible if we were all of the same mind...we'd all buy the same razor :)

    Looks like a 1930s Electrolux vac. Not that that's a bad thing. Nice styling.

    Talk about thread resurrection.....

    The razor that never disappoints, the RX. Always works in 2 passes with the slightest of touch ups around the chin & Adam’s Apple area. Used a fresh Feather Pro and it was a no contest for the whiskers this morning. The RX is not for everyone and I understand that completely. It’s a supremely efficient razor with a healthy dose of blade feel that if one is careless, you’re going to potentially pay a price for that with some serious irritation, nics or even worse some skin removal. But, sound technique & NO PRESSURE really allows you to see and feel what this razor is capable of. It’s a Titan in not just the SE world but, in all of wet shavedom. Love the design, the feel and look of it. Superb, simply superb....
