I've used safety razors for years; despite what it looks like, single blade razors give a much better shave for less irritation than multi-bladed options. The only issue is getting the hard to reach places under the chin and jawline. This project was born out of that frustration, and works like this. The tighter your grip on the handle, the less the blade moves freely. Loosen your grip to let it flow around curvature, and you can feel in your hand the amount it has moved. It's a gentle shave for a sharp tool.
The design of axle is intended to be simple to manufacture, disassemble, repair, and clean. Razors should work for the life of their user without the need to be replaced, and axle was created around that premise. The only joint is highlighted with a color accented stud to accentuate the mechanical nature of the product.
