Just a word of caution: I used a new blade and it's so sharp it slice right through my blue tapes. It might be a good ideas to reuse your spent blades. Also, razor blade are very very sharp so be extra careful when inserting

Well done. The thing is really handy in getting the prints off the desk. Just bear in mind that the blade might get stuck, when pulling back

Yes, I've found that myself. It's really only good for pushing, but that is sufficient for 99% of my prints. I may do a version with a retention screw if it ends up bothering me.

Would be nice to have a screw that would hold the blade in place. The other thing I've noticed is that the blade tends to bend after some time. Maybe making a deeper hole will solve this?

I've added a blade retention mechanism in a remixed version; no screws. Kept the blade depth the same as I want some flexibility to get it flat under the print. Reverse the blade if it starts to bend.

What do you think, one screw or two? Do all razors have the same pattern cut out? How do actual razors retain their blades? I guess I'll go do some research.
Screw retainer would necessitate a deeper hole, to cover up the cutout, but I'm concerned that getting too near the blade would make it difficult to get it under a print.
