Most unique razor you use

I believe there are files on Thingy universe and someone can print one off for you. If you can not find the files I might be able to find them for you.
If that is something someone? Could post here that would be greatly appreciated, I don't knkw much about 3d printing, but I know ppl who can print it off for me? Thank you.

Also that aluminum se1 op posted looks amazing, if it was still being made it would be on my acquisition list for sure.

I found the TNNSER files for this razor I Believe, there all kinds of different models that Tom & Roger designed over the last 2 years. Who ever prints you razor will know that. Roger has some interesting models also that hold Gem razor and Tom has a lot of different great designs for holding regular DE blades to Schick blades & Gem. Tom makes some of his proto types out of Aluminum and 3D plastic.
Who ever you decide to have print your razor he needs this file for reference.

The one in my avatar, built by me. Or a two piece SC New or a Myatt New improved hybrid, I have a few unique ones.
 
This is not unusual, but I am very happy to have it.
My "use" of it is limited to appreciation and occasional toy with it.

I printed one of the Tnnser razors and it shaves pretty well.

Been participating in another 3D printed project where @RDM is designing OLD Type conversion baseplates for the Tech razor cap. The results have been well above par. The shaves have been extremely efficient. Pic below.

I also have a few other unique and/or rare razors that I enjoy, including Psycho Techs, Hybrid Techs, other unusual vintage specimens, Charcoal Goods and Wolfman razors.

Hmm, mostly modern - though that Wilkinson posted by Ouchyfoot is superb! My Most Unique is the Henckel's Rapide that I've posted before - even the blade hold-down is one of a kind, aside from those teeth!

"Look what I found"
Three that I am using this week that are unusual. Walter Busch aka Walbusch, a adjustable DE slant and two straights, a Thomas Scargill Stub Tail (1815-25) and a Wade & Butcher (1830-37). Unusual for being in such good condition for their age. The slant, set at 5 and loaded with a Feather, deliverers a 1 and a 1/2 pass smooth face

I finally got around to getting some pics of the S3S, with an iKon handle.

I also posted it next to the original brass SBS on a Wolfman handle. Finally, a couple of pics with the S3S, the brass SBS, and a Pils. There are certainly similarities among the three, but some differences, too.

Ask me about shaving naked!
The old style orihi kamisori fit this category, this is the original razor design said to have been brought to Japan from China by Buddhist monks. I have another one, NOS that should arrive today or tomorrow I hope..

The others are old ‘cast steel’, acier fondue’ etc stubtails simply by the virtue that the ones in the image are all over 200 years old, and it’s not out of the question that they could be closer to 250 years old. It’s a testament to the design of a straight razor that it can be both beautiful and functional after a fourth of a millenium. There are people who prefer these old razors to current ones, they have a rep for shaving extremely smoothly and I agree. The steel tended to be harder and finer grained than later razors.

Top to bottom last image, Warburton ‘Lisbon’ (they stopped using city names about 1800), Shepherd in original scales, scales were masterfully restored by ‘Outback Mike’ over at the Palace, and an unrestored C. Milne.

Like the OP I am going with Above the Tie, a regular stainless steel Windsor but with copper plates (mild and regular). Sometimes it has an Atlas handle and sometimes a Kronos. There are not a host of copper plates, and it does not appear that any more are on the way, making it somewhat unusual. It is my only razor. Others I have owned were quite common, Schick, Gillette, Merkur, and Edwin Jagger.
