Another 3D printed SE razor is the "

This razor for injector blades is a cooperation between Tom White (Head und V2 handle) and myself (V3 handle).
Cap, base and blade are held together by small magnets.
The files for both versions are available free of charge for non-commercial use:

3D-printing is getting cheaper all the time. My yellow one (see below) cost less than 7 Euro shipped.

Version 2 has a simple straight handle:

Tom then asked me to adapt my 'Enders-Speed-Style' handle:

A little animation to show the head with the magnets:

Feedback from testers is quite positive. Personally, I think the blade angle is too steep. Even though the cap is very small it gets in the way. And it's so tiny it's fiddly.
That's why the next razor will have no cap at all - and a new handle - and it will probably be available as a slant.
3 magnets should do the trick.
Watch this space.

That's roughly where I'm going with this - subject to a lot of change:

Hmmm... That mechanism looks a little too complicated.

I like the throwback to the early Schick handles! :daumenhoch

Well, that round area also brings back that earlier Schick shape. Maybe the nut and bolt will hold better than the magnets. I would be interested in seeing the non slanting version. :daumenhoch

Beautiful! When will this be loaded to the public domain site? It is kind of like the early Gem blade razors that left the blade exposed on top. :daumenhoch

Thank you. It won't be public domain, just free for non-commercial use. Give me a couple of days.
The handle is already available:

And yes, the early capless Gem razors helped convince me that a cap is optional.
Seeing the blade "float on top" is unnerving at first, but I've had 3 shaves with it so far and you forget about the blade.
