This question already has an answer here:

I have a client with a website name that ends with se. I thought instead of dealing with .com domain names I would register something like gardenho.se.

Is there anything wrong with this? Does this impact SEO? Can I simply have the one name and then redirect it to the .com domain name so that it can be used on business cards?

There is nothing wrong with it at all. Keep in mind that http://gardenho.se won't show up as 'garden hose' to Google. You can use a 301 to redirect the .com
