I have gotten so into this DE stuff in such a short amount of time, that I had to design my own.

My target was a perfect 5 on a scale of 1 to 10 for aggressiveness. I printed one on my home printer, and it works really well.

Looks great!

You have a 3D printer?

Thank you.

Yes, I have a 3D printer.

The lack of lather was to show how efficient the design was even though I have a coarse beard (that was 2-3 days growth). I normally use lather.

That's pretty cool. I would like to see a few close up shots of that razor. What kind of blade gap and blade exposure does it have? Thanks for posting.

I just altered the bottom profile to sleeken it up, look more like some classic designs, and to use less material. Also, here are some views of the blade gap and angle from the 3D model:

I wish I knew how to do this. I'd love to see how closely I could clone my Darwin Deluxe with a 3D printer.

I can send some to a few people who want to try these for the cost of postage. You will get at least two top caps, one base, one handle, and an Astra and a Personna blade. Send me a message if you want it.

My copy arrived in the mail today:  that was fast.  Because of other things that are going on in our household this weekend, it probably will be Monday or so before I have a chance to use it after proper lathering up on a real growth of beard, but the razor certainly looks interesting.  I'll report further when I have more to report.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try it out.
