Thank you, Gary!
Cool razor. Does the blade inject or is there a secret way of putting the blade in? I must find out. Maybe the answer is on the 3d printed razor thread. Must go now.
Menthol Monday's Shave
Cold Water Rinse
Kiss My Face Shaving Cream
Feather AC Blade
The Kiss My Face Shaving Cream was applied with the Jayaruh 30RS silver tip brush. One pass and touch ups with the Cobra Classic with a Feather AC Blade gave me a close, comfortable shave. After a cold water rinse I finished off with Osage Rub. I am clean, smooth, and refreshed...
OC Damaskeen today. I took extra care in paying attention to grain direction on my trouble spots this morning. It made a bit of a difference with a very close shave with almost zero irritation.
Amazing 3D printed Schick!! Got to find out more...

That is a pretty slick design there. Couple of questions how'd you attach that spring and I take it you made moveable to drop the guard to load blades.

WOW now that is something. Thanks for sharing. How does it shave???
GEMonday, Jan18th 2021, Well did not feel like missing a MMMonday(A.S.E monday) So to have a little fun decided a Daily double, I picked my easy going 1st Generation Featherweight VS my new 2nd generation Razorock Lupo .72. I let the Gem Featherweight have the tough whisker side and the RR Lupo.72 the other side with 24 hrs growth. Both razors are easy to handle on the face and have become some of my many favorites.
Both are different in weight by quite a bit and my skill level is good enough to handle both issues with the RR Lupo is 3 times the weight of my Gem Feather weight(1OZ). First pass very similar in beard reduction, 2nd pass of on either side very similar again and then the pickups I was pleasantly surprized a tie on closeness. So did the feel test and I had a hard time with what side won- so out came the cottonball test and it also indicated a dead tie with no snagging of cotton. The Gem Feather had the odds against it (tough beard under chin side) but also I have used that razor many more times compared to the RR Lupo .72.
So to conclude I had a different MMMonday with a little enjoyment for this shaving enthusiast.
Razor: Gem Feather weight 1st generation- MFG 1950-52, 2nd gen 1953-54, excellent razor, fun to use with great results.
Razor: Razorock 2nd generation Lupo .72 - Mfg 2021, excellent built razor and a joy to use with just 3 shaves in.
Blade: Gem Personna SS PTFE (2) excellent blade, very sharpe, great longevity and smooths out nicely & predictable.
Blade: Gillette Astra SP (3) excellent blade Sharp & smooth with reasonable longevity.
Soap: Razorock XXX. very nice clean scent with excellent lather qualities.
Brush: Yaqi Red zebra handle 26 mm knot- excellent lather creator with heavenly cloud like soft tips with a bit of back bone + excellent lather painter IMO.
Pre shave: Brush washed my whole face with CeraVe hand bar cleanser + a dollop of clear Aloe Vera on the cleaned beard area.
Prep: Cold water rinse after each pass of 2 + pickups. WTG + ATG + pickups on each side of face with 2 different razors.
Post shave: Razorock XXX with witch Hazel + a dollop of Nivea balm.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBs + no irritation + no weepers = excellent shave with my Gem Feather weight + Gem coated blade.
Results: CCS,DFS,BBS + no irritation + no weepers =excellent shave with my RR Lupo.72 + a Gillette Astra SP blade.
Have some great shaves! Stay & think safe in these times!
Thank you @Leo K.
Thank you, @Ron R . It shaves like a typical Type E, but with a much lighter feel of course.
Thank you! The blade is loaded manually. The baseplate and spring come off as one piece for loading. When loaded, the spring clips on the button at the base of the head applying upward pressure and inter-locking the baseplate with the blade tabs on the cap.
