Dubbed ‘Razor Maker: powered by Gillette,’ the concept takes the form of a platform that lets users choose from 48 different designs that can only be produced using 3D-printing technology. First, shoppers select a handle, before opting for one of seven colors, and adding text for a final personal flourish. The service, which is launching in the US, is compatible with the brand’s ‘MACH3’ or ‘Fusion5 ProGlide’ razor cartridges.

The fully personalized ‘Razor Maker’ products are fabricated at Gillette’s Boston headquarters using stereolithography (SLA) printing technology, and orders will take up to three weeks to be delivered.
