Leave it to me to find weird shaving razors and this is something else. Picked up at shave.net this upstart online company seems to favor Chinese products because it appears most of their razors are re-branded Yaqis. Now that is not a bad things as the Yaqi razors and brushes are pretty good. This particular razor is suppose to be adjustable by tightening or loosening the knob on the handle. It actually works. In order to insert the blade you must take off the top screw so the head comes off then insert the blade and tighten it down gently ( the razor is plastic 3d printed). The razor consists of a plastic body and a spring,2 washers, 2 nuts and a threaded long screw. The shave using an Israeli Personna and Fine L'Orange Noir shave soap was outstanding. A lot of blade feel but smooth as silk.

So, there is a screw in the middle of the cap?  Is it a metal or plastic screw?

All nuts, washers, spring and machined screw are metal
2 nuts, 3 washers, one screw and one spring. The rest is a 3D printed plastic.
Also has a top cap machined screw that holds blade in place between top and bottom cap.

Yes but you have to go to the manufacturer which is Shapeways located in New York. There whole 3D printing is done in the USA. I have just ordered a slant. The downside is it does not come with hardware. I ordered a flange nut and screw from Home Depot which was very cheap. Should have it complete in under two weeks. Total cost about $21.

I have added another 3D printed razor to  my modest collection. The latest is the Sharkbone 220 slant. Only 3" long and weighs a mere 7/10th of an ounce. Will test in the morning using a Feather blade. These razors from Shapeway do not come with hardware. But Home depot has them and in stainless steel.

Shapeways produces and handles selling for severaldesigners. The John Henry, the Sharkbone, and a few more razors were designed by drone115b/Liberty Village Shaving Society. The sharkbone I got 2016 and is a very nice razor, shaves really well. Pity the placing of the blade is a bit of a hassle. That has improved in the other models btw.

They must have changed the design slightly for the Sharkbone as you now have to screw the long bolt all the way through the handle but its not a problem. This morning's shave was outstanding. Very close and smooth using a Feather blade. The idea that a very light small razor can't shave is ridiculous.

Sharkbone always had that. See this pic I made after I first shaved with one, januari 12 2016:

Later he designed different models, where the assemblymethods changed.
The Kraken 248 I got may 2016, which has a short srew and a nut hgh in the handle:

Walebone222, august 2016. Similar assembly as the Kraken 248, with added metalwork on the bottom of the handle for a better balance:

This is my 3rd 3D printed razor called Genisys which is a 3 piece razor. They do come as a complete razor and all you have to supply is a button head stainless steel machined screw M5 or 10/32. I just bought the head only and used a Maggard black anodized stainless steel handle. This razor has given me the closest shave I can remember in all the years I have been shaving. And I don't say that lightly. The blade exposure looks fearsome but it doesn't feel aggressive.
