    Another 3D-printed SE razor.
    This time I wasn't involved in the design, but I helped name it.

    The design is by Roger Quintero.
    A very talented designer of shaving stuff in my opinion.

    It's a razor for GEM blades and I love the way the blades are secured (see animation)
    I have had one printed and have been very impressed.
    It's more aggressive than a GEM 19112 or Micromatic, but not frighteningly so.
    A very agile little razor giving and irritation and blood-free shave.

    The files for printing one yourself can be found here:
    Printing costs were about $5. Mustn't grumble.


    My verdict: 5 thumbs up.

    P.S.: My capless slant razor is ready and next.

    I like it. Should be real easy to rinse.

    The 2-piece "clamp" design for AC blades is even nicer IMHO.

    It's nice, but I'm not a big fan of AC blades... too wide...

    It is based upon the design of the Clark King razors made in the 1910s. It was and still is a good example of a K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid) design.

    @riverrun I'm a big fan of AC blades.
    And usually do not love too much the GEM style.
    Plus, the "clamp" design is unique for that kind of long blades.
    Never seen a 2-piece geometry for AC.

    Actually, I like the shape.
    The blade is totally flat.

    They made 3 distinct versions, all great shavers but some of the makes are no doubt more aggressive than others. Little bit of history Clark called the razors a Dollar King or King razor when it was nickel plated and Silver King when silver plated.

    Am intrigued by the looks. If it is as good as the TNNSER that I used today I shall investigate local Printers. Hope all is well with you up North.

    Mike, definitely as good, if not better than the TNNSER. Well worth investigating.
    We are safely ensconced up here, thanks.

    I just had mine printed in green ABS. The back of the head is a little rough, but it will probably sand down fine. I am looking forward to taking it out for a spin.

    It does look rough...

    You should really send it back to the printer and have it done again.
    Compare to the one that @Electrif got.

    I concur with @riverrun re the head. However the handle looks ok.
