    Ikon 103 Short Comb, Tatara handle/Kai (2). Very close but not very comfortable, the Ikon design requires you ride the cap more than you should given the geometry to avoid the same too pointy teeth you find on the Ikon Deluxe . It's a very unfortunate flaw because it's a nice shaver otherwise. The Tatara handle offers good balance with the aluminum composite head.[​IMG]

    New Short Comb-Prismatic (Rocnel Bohin handle)/Kai (2). I'm just giddy how well this performs.

    Because the Prismatic cap supports the blade close to its edge only at the ends I used one shim to increase rigidity. Probably not necessary in most situations but as aggressive shavers go this configuration can hardly be beat. Fortunately I have multiple Short comb plates so this can remain at the ready. [​IMG]
