Early concept sketch for a "Gem" type ATT razor. We will see how it goes from here. Input welcome.

Great stuff, Stan - thanks for sharing.  Would that profile introduce a bit of drag?  Early concept I understand, just the first thing that came to mind.  Exciting nonetheless!

I want to incorporate the slight roundness to help with finding the angle much like a DE.

I would be thrilled to have a modern ATT razor that takes Gem blades!

One of the great things about the GEM series of razors is that the cap provided a great guide for the shaving angle.  Simply apply the cap to the skin and start shaving.  Great if you could replicate that guide.

Thanks for that tip.

Can't wait for this!!! I've been waiting for a razor manufacturer to finally bring this to the market. Long overdue imo. Best of luck Stan. Please consider the weight, not overly heavy would be great.

I am trying to keep the weight and balance in line but stainless by its very nature will result in a more hefty razor than the vintage ones. I do understand what you mean.

Understood Sir. Thanks for keeping it in mind. Best of luck. Don't want to jump the gun but do you have a timeline in mind for release?

If all goes well and this is very preliminary, perhaps June.
