I love being obsessed. I love being obsessed with video games, lacrosse, computer programming, bowling, 3D printing, slacklining, wet shaving, what ever it may be. As long as there’s enough information readily available on the subject, I will dive into it headfirst with no forethought of an escape route. I love the high of always having something on my mind, always having something to look forward to and to learn more about. When I’m not immediately obsessing over something, I often find myself looking for new things to adore, browsing the internet or scouring bookstores for some spark that I…

A Shaving Stand Made With A 3D Printer

Like many of those already on Sharpologist, I’ve made a regular routine of wet shaving to maintain my appearance. I first took the plunge into this wide, wonderful world last year when I bought a vintage 1930’s Schick injector razor. I’ve since upgraded to a Parker 22R DE razor, and, although my setup is quite humble compared with many others that I’ve seen (shoutout to /r/wicked_edge!), I find that my shaving experience is still profoundly greater than it ever was while using cartridge razors.  I decided to use a 3D printer to create a shaving stand for my shaving gear….
