Long time no see..
It has been almost a year since my last post. It was about the GEMInjector Razor i was designing.
But recently there have been some progresses/changes in my daily life which made me concentrate to different tasks and i couldn’t keep up with the wetshaving.
One of the changes is moving another place for a couple of years.
This means that i won’t be able to continue the production.
I will try to design more in my spare time.
Maybe i can return to the production when im back, who knows ?
Hello all, long time no see. I was heavily overwhelmed with daily work and couldn’t find time to work on the hobby. In my spare time, i revised the GEMInjector which I posted about it here before. I designed it as a spring loaded type. It both utilizes GEM and Injector blades. I got the prototype and took some notes. Now there are a couple of things to be tweaked. I don’t know when i will be able to get it machined but i will try my best.
Here is the short video i posted in instagram. More will be coming.

It is a beast. Needs to be tamed.
Head is too heavy for the handle.
I will use a bigger handle next time.
Finally I finished polishing and packaging the razors.
They took a long time to finish. Very time consuming but i liked the result…
Finished polishing and buffing the top caps. Now they have a mirror finish. I left the inside untouched since it takes a long time to finish it. Just gave them a light polish. The baseplates are on the way to be buffed.
Finally I managed to get what i want. After a couple of failures in machining the handle, i received a neatly shaped handle with tight tolerances. It has tiny machining marks which can be seen inside the helices in the above photo but it wont be an issue. It looks better in person. I’m planning to offer the machined version without any extra process and a polished version which will be paired with a TR-2 head.
The specs are
14 x 85 mm.
316 Stainless Steel
Finally a new handle came up, Kalyon!
It is the steel version of the famous Bohin Razor’s handle. Lightly polished, seems that it will take forever to make a mirror finish, so i didn’t go further.
Its 14 x 85mm
