Enders Speed Razor vs. Speed Shaver - Jayaruh - 04-26-2020

Last July, I got an Enders Speed Razor. It is the older model of the Speed Razor (1934). The handle and the interface are the main differences between the Speed Razor and the Speed Shaver (1943). In the picture below you can see that the head profiles are basically the same. The Speed Shaver is on top.

On the left, the Speed Shaver has a squared opening for the blade while the Speed Razor on the right has a round opening.

The Speed Shaver has some decorative slots while the Speed Razor is rather plain. I suspect that the shaves would be somewhat identical

I’ve never taken notice of the differences, although I’m sure I’ve seen them. I’m guessing the later model Speed Shaver had the multiple color options.

I do not have any of these. Good looking razors though. Thanks for the write up!

Jayaruh you forgot your special edition wooden handled model.

I had a user grade Enders  razor and was wondering how it was attached to the handle. Then, my need to know took over. I got out my Dremel and separated the handle from the head.

I then got busy and fashioned a handle from some walnut I had on hand. Here it is dry fitted to the head.

I carved some grips on the sides. Then I put a coat of polycrylic on the handle. This is before the polycrylic.

After two coats of polycrylic: dry fitting.

I attached the handle to the head with epoxy.

Ah there she is. Beautiful work my friend. That was the inspiration for the handle I made for Flintstone.

Thanks guys. The Speed Shaver was a product of genius design. I only wish they still made the blades for it.


RE: Enders Speed Razor vs. Speed Shaver - Wchnu - 05-25-2020

Beautiful work as always.
