Stumbled over an interesting web page the other day; Origins of the safety razors.
Lots of interesting razors, even if I like the so called Pig Scraper the most:

I can actually see making something like this on a modern 3D printer, suitable modified to use a modern SE or DE blade... shouldn't be too hard.

Very interesting! Thanks.

EverReady also made a version of the pig scraper, and I always wondered about it. Classic simplicity. Then they moved into lather catchers.
