    I am tempted, but I don't have the file. Lame excuse, right?

    Finally got a Schick type C1. Three of them in fact but one is in need of repair.

    Min_GEM_handle.stl
    Those are the ones I used.

    The others are for SLA aka resin printing.

    Thanks. I'm more than happy to share such innovative razors.
    From my understanding there are more in the pipeline.

    Friday's Shave
    [​IMG]

    Cold Water Rinse
    L'Occitane Shaving Soap
    Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger
    Gillette Twinjector
    Personna Injector
    CWR
    Family Dollar Spice AS

    The L'Occitane Shaving Soap face-lathered well with Jayaruh #206 Two-band Badger Brush. Two passes and touch ups with the Gillette Twinjector razor with a Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Family Dollar Spice AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...

    Razor: Gem Clog Pruf (Peerless model 17nib safety bar)- Mfg 1945, Excellent mid range, built to last and a joy to use!
    Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (4) excellent blade, very sharp, excellent longevity, smooths out nicely & predictable.
    Soap: Ogallala Bay rum & Sandal wood [​IMG] -excellent protection and nice Bayrum with clove and sandal wood, homerun for now.
    Brush: Yaqi Artic sky knot 24mm- WoW for a new addition to my brush den, excellent lather creator, nice gentle scrubber with heavenly cloud like soft tips for painting. A new generation type of synthetic that is just wonderful for me. Very enjoyable shave.
    Pre shave:Brush wash my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera Gel on the cleaned beard area.
    Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups.
    Post shave: Ogallala bay rum with Sandal wood :love029:+ a dollop of Nivea balm.

    This is so far the best shave I've had with this razor and blade combo. I suspect it has to do with how the blade is wearing. I've experienced the same with injector blades on shaves 6 - 8 and I doubt AC style injector blades are that much different. As such I also expect about 10 good shaves out this blade like I get with injector blades before needing to be tossed. BBS finish achieved.

    Parker Adjustable Injector Razor
    Persona
    Zenith B27 Chubby Boar
    Mitchell’s Wool Fat
    Dominica Grand Bay Rum Aftershave

    [​IMG]

    The Parker shipped with a new blade but I loaded a new one anyway. The first sensation of the razor is the lightness. Seriously next to a Supply Co injector this felt toy like. I have the same feeling about the vintage injector razors I have tried. I dialed the Parker wide open and had little to no blade feel. The angle was very easy to find and maintain. I found the razor to be a smooth shaver. Three passes and touch ups caught the baby but I had to work at catching the little guy. I am sure that my results will improve with use. I will load a Schick Proline to see if that improves the efficiency which I don't expect. f you are looking for a very aggressive razor then I would look elsewhere. If however, you are looking for a smooth reasonably efficient razor that exhibits the characteristics of vintage adjustable injectors at a great price, the Parker Adjustable is worth consideration.

    Kind of a neat concept for holding a Gem blade, did not take long to get it up and going from the 3D printer machine. Thanks for sharing. How was the shave?

    The design concept works really well.
    I assume you meant "did it take long" , well I didn't actually print it myself. But it didn't take long to get it from the printers.
    The shave was a triumph.
