Not sure, but whoever is designing one has his work cut out for himself, with the Sabre L2 to compete with.

PAA using a similar design as the Rocnel where the post on the cap is disassociated from the blade.  Thanks for posting.  

I wonder if we'll see a design similar to the One Blade where the Gem blade is pushed into place.  I liked that design approach but not the Feather blade dependency.

That was exactly what i thought when i read that, considering all the delays with their Model T.

That sounds interesting, i hope the price will be more in the 200,- $ than 400,- $ range.

I think the lads at Rockwell are learning a little something about razor manufacture:  If you design something complex (like an adjustable TTO razor), you are in for a ride.  Big companies with large engineering departments can handle it; it's different for what is essentially a two-person operation.  Who knows when the Model T will finally be finished, if at all.  It's now about 1 year behind schedule.

So...  I expect them to go back to a simple design for their Gem-blade project.  The market is starting to crowd a bit in that space, though.  So I'm not sure where their niche will be.

Hopefully they stay in the same niche they already occupy:
The best shave and half the price of others.
