I like The Taipan.
I'd like the AC Matic too ...
At some point, they will. The DE version was added a week ago.

Just thought I share my method for making straight razor scales. While this isn't necessarily 3d printing, it is 3d carving (the total opposite of 3d printing).
The scales in this post are for a Dubl Duck Special N0.1 blade that I restored some time ago.
First I trace the scales from pictures and scale to size by referencing the blade dimensions. The idea is to keep the geometry as close to the original as possible, but since I'll be using birds eye maple, I will add just a bit more thickness. After tracing, I'll create a 3d model that will be used for programming the 3d tooling paths on a CNC router.
Once the tooling paths are generated, the CNC router takes over and does the dirty work. For this project, two 3d passes are generated. The first pass is the roughing pass which removes the bulk of the material and prepares the surface for the finishing pass.
This is after the finishing pass. They are now ready for sanding.
The Dubl Duck trademark is added with a laser before sealing and coating.
The next step creates extra work, but it's well worth it. I dip the scales in CA glue for about five minutes, and then they air dry for about an hour. At this point, the CA has penetrated the wood enough to almost turn it into plastic. After some more sanding, natural tung oil is used for surface coating. The tung oil cannot penetrate the CA coating, it only creates a working surface for polishing.
After some alternating passes of sanding with 5000 grit pads and polishing with Mother's Plastic Polish, this is the end result.
Thats Very Nice.. I want one of those cutting and engraving systems...
The TriDE Safety Razor is a simple, more traditional tried and true three-piece design. I designed it with ease of printing in mind by maintaining a 0.2mm layer height design increment and keeping the thread in line with the shaft layers for a stronger and cleaner print. The only post-processing required is breaking away the included supports on the cap.
The STLs for the TriDE safety razor are available for download here:
I had a great shave this evening with PRE de PROVENCE No. 63, my #375 brush by @Jayaruh and my Gold Tone Fat Handle G Tech with a combination OC SB 3D printed base plate. The plates are modified from my earlier design, and right now they're closer to medium aggression, so, I'll keep tweaking them for a slightly more aggressive feel. It was a fun shave. The 1st pass was with the OC and 2nd pass was with the SB.
Are those base plates stl available anywhere to download and print ?
They will be soon. First I want to tweak the efficiency level. Right now is just above medium for my liking and I would like to finalize it between medium and aggressive. I also need to find every tech I have and make sure the plates fit on all of them.
