About 2 1/2 years ago I worked with a product engineer to design a single edge safety razor that takes the Feather Professional blades. I shopped it around extensively, received some interest from machine shops, but was ultimately told that it either could not be machined as designed or that machining would be so expensive that it was not feasible. I was about ready to give up. It turns out that I was simply shopping it to the wrong machine shops.

I started shopping it around again and have received some good news. The new machine shop assured me that with some minor changes to the tongue and groove design, they can produce it for me.  I hope to have a 3D model in about a week. Prototypes will follow approximately 4 weeks after I approve the model.

The production model will be fully machined from 303 Stainless Steel and the razor will be 100% U.S. Made. Rx Razor Works -Your Prescription to a better shave!

The same basic design but with a few tweaks.  The major difference is the tongue and groove mechanism had to be reworked to make it machinable.
