Some of you may already be familiar with this small company out of Istanbul as they already have a rather attractive DE razor on the market (The P1):

It come in a very attractive wooden box (and I believe the new SE will as well) - looks like something @PLANofMAN might like Smile

Rocnel hand-machines their products and according to their site they are able to product three razors per week.
You can read about their production process here and see the machines used here.
They use a wide variety of equipment - from new...to old Japanese machines from the 1930's:

Anyway - the new offering is a SE razor.
The Rocnel SE uses DE blades snapped in half and is still in pre-production taking pre-orders but I believe they are ramping up to start production very soon if not already.
The price for the SE razor that you see online, is, I believe a 'deposit' of $25 that you make towards the final purchase of the razor. Not sure what it will cost in the end.

Looks like an interesting and attractive razor.

Oh so the $25 is just a deposit? I've been following this for a couple weeks confused as hell as to how they could make a 316 razor for so cheap.

I didn't realize it took a DE blade snapped in half. That definitely tempers my excitement a bit. I was hoping for a SE that uses GEM blades. Hey, a guy can dream.

Just another way to capitalize on the wet shaving craze. It would be nice if it accepted SE blades (Feather,etc) but it doesn't so I will pass no matter how cheap they might wind up being. However, it does look like a nice piece of machining.

I was more interested but if a DE snapped in half maybe not so much. I agree that it is great looking work though and will certainly follow as it gets closer to release.

Believe it or not - but I heard back...and the 25 dollars is for the entire razor!

My pre-order is in. And no, no need to give any billing info - it's just to get onto the list.
We'll see what happens next month.

Me too. It's a sickness I tell you. I had just emailed Murat and he added me to the list.

$25 is nuts.

Surely one of the virtues of an SE/injector razor is the thicker, stiffer blades, leading to a smoother shave especially for coarse whiskers. Snapping a DE blade in half makes this a lot less interesting to me: at that point, I'd rather just use a DE and get the advantage of both edges.
