Is that designed for an injector blade or does it just happens to take one?
It's for injector blades only. It's a simple two-piece, and the blade is manually loaded. Thanks
Very cool! How is the shave in comparison to more commonly known injector type razors?
I am working with @twhite on a razor head that is based on the razorock Hawk V3 open comb but shrunk in size to use an injector blade. If you make that public like this one eventually will be there will be more decent DIY options for injector blades than commercial offerings. We are working on the idea of 2 tier design, one for 3d printed plastics and just the head and cap that can be SLM printed in aluminum for those that want a metal razor head. The main difference in the designs is one cap will have a stud that can be threaded and the other uses a screw to attach to the handle. Both will share the same base plate. My sense is if the metal printing can be done at a price point that is tolerable by wet shavers then that is going to drive more users to try these designs and in turn SE blades than would otherwise consider because they see plastic as cheap and flimsy.

ENDGEM SPEED №1 3D
by Roger Quintero
GEM SSC #4
It shaves great, but it doesn't feel like an injector. It feels more like a typical 1912, but with a much lighter feel. This was my attempt at duplicating an Ever-Ready Streamline which I don't own yet.
My design is different from the Hawk V3. It works more like the Rocnel SE50. This design is a few years old and I stopped refining it. It's difficult to print due to the tight tolerances, so, making it available would probably just cause issues for printers, but I would gladly provide the files to you and/or Mr. White, and if I can be of assistance, don't hesitate to reach out.
Very nice! I hope it's not too mild.
The only razors that take gem blades I've used an injector blade in is the micromatic razors. I can't say they brought any improvement or anything different to the shaves so my take without actually doing some research is the blade geometries for an injector or Gem style SE blade are going to differ to get optimal results. If I ever decide to take a more serious look at it I'll do the basic geometry for extreme cases, see what works best then dial it in from there when designing.
Will do especially if you can provide some assistance in how to best print the razor head to minimize distortions.

Thanks! Sometimes my brain needs a nudge in the right direction.
No, it wasn't too mild. I'm still smooth hours after. The one that thing that impressed was the audio feedback.

Still working as it should with a BBS finish. As if the Taconic pump cream isn't slick enough adding some pure aloe vera gel into the cream before whipping up lather makes this stuff super slick and should work well with any cream.

I am just so glad that I have persevered with The Enoch, and have just completed 10 consecutive Shaves without a hitch. I now prefer it to the larger Hiram Commander which I liked from the off. I find that with ease I can work with it around the upper lip/chin , and it really is so good working around the neck. Now has become one of my most dependable SE Razors both Modern and Vintage.
Cold Water Rinse
Barbasol Original Shaving Cream
Burma Shave Boar
The Barbasol Original Shaving Cream was applied with the Burma Shave Boar. One pass and touch ups with the Schick L with a Personna Injector blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Barbasol AS. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
Thanks, Gary. Indeed it does smell awesome!
