It's quite simple actually. For most 3d printed razors the most common material is PLA with 100% infill.
Arthur @Electrif sent me a link to a printing company some time back. I got lost in the ordering process. They seem all set up for large orders. I assume samples have to be requested.

Here's my finished design of the 3d printed lather catcher with storage case.

This SE safety razor design was inspired by the "Stoll Chrome Steel Lather Catcher" made by The Wilbert Cutlery Co. in Chicago IL, in the early 1900s. The razor uses the more readily available GEM blades. With the addition of a baton handle, this razor is appropriately named "Stoll Jr.". The razor is very easy to maneuver, and the unique floating edge design provides excellent feedback.

This razor is very easy to print, and once assembled, it is a one-piece razor with no moving parts. The only post-processing should be the removal of the included support on the razor-head and gluing the head and handle together with CA glue, or similar. Additional supports are NOT needed.

How to install blade:
Hold the blade from sides with thumb and index finger and edge pointing away from hand. With the same grip, insert the spine of the blade through the front of the razor-head between the cap and the comb and slide into the back slot. Inspect that the blade is properly centered and that the spine is making full contact in the back slot. The cap should have good tension on the blade, and the cap's index tab should be properly seated in the blade's center slot. DO NOT INSTALL, OR REMOVE BLADE FROM THE SIDES.

How to print storage case with different color letters:
Step 1) Open file "Stoll_Jr_Case_Letters.stl" into slicer of choice. Center object if it doesn't automatically center when loaded. Set the first layer height to 0.2mm and slice and print with your filament color of choice. When the print is finished, DO NOT remove it from the build platform.

Step 2) Open file "Stoll_Jr_Case_Main.stl" into slicer of choice. Center object if it doesn't automatically center when loaded. Set the first layer height to 0.2mm and slice and print using a different color filament. This file will print around and on top of the letters from the first printed file and will combine the two-color objects on the same layer. The case is a print-in-place design and may require some flexing at the hinges to break away any layers that may have fused during printing.

The files are now available on Thingiverse.
