IKon S3S

Am I the only one who has an iKon S3S? For the uninitiated, it is a Pils- and Tradere-like razor but it is a dual comb. It is polished stainless steel.
There was a time when iKon made several razors of this style. The Modern, the SK9, the H2O, and the S3S, sequentially. I had a chance to buy the SK9 at Pasteur's in NYC when I was visiting my brother, but passed on it because it was close to $200, which was a lot for a razor back then. Many times I look back and wish that I had purchased it.
Anyway, years later I acquired the S3S secondhand. I don't know how many of these were made, so I don't know how rare it is.
I pulled mine out recently and paired it with a long Wolfman handle. It shaves wonderfully, smooth and on the mild side of medium, with little blade feel but with decent efficiency. On the long handle, it is almost li? E stepping back in time and shaving with my original Tradere.
Does anybody else have the S3S, or did you have one at one time? Have you tried the Modern, the SK9, the H2O? Any idea about how rare the S3S is? Any thoughts about how these razors shave? I would love to hear your experiences.

I've never shaved with the S3S, nor have I seen one live.

No idea how rare the S3S is or how many were made?
