JQ test drives Merkur's Slant Bar Heavy Duty Safety Razor.
A fine razor designed for a lifetime of use, the original Merkur Slant Blade is still one of the best safety razors available today. This is the razor that men the world over have learned to shave with for nearly one hundred years.
The Slant Bar is made with a larger and heavier handle for those who like a bit more to hold on to as well as a uniquely designed 'slanted' shave head that imparts a slicing motion while shaving, allowing for a particularly close shave due to its ability to glide along the difficult curves of the face. It is not for beginners. This model has a reputation as a very aggressive shaver and recommended for men with a particularly thick or coarse beard. Part # 198
Made with Old World quality and craftsmanship, Merkur razors and blades will produce the closest, smoothest shave you've ever had. Offering a full line of safety razors, from traditional style to more modern Mach 3 designs, Merkur combines the best of old and new world.

My Favorite Razor by The Fox from Larimore, NDAge: 35-44Gender: Male Used Product For: More than 2 years
This was my first DE razor and is probably still my favorite. It gives a really good, close shave without being overly aggressive. I also prefer the two piece design of this Merkur over the standard three piece designs of most other products. I really can’t think of anything negative to say about this razor.

I tried this razor after the 34c or non slant version. This is as close to a straight razor shave that you can get. Be patient as there is a long learning curve. Great for guys who normally get irritated from those multi blade cartridges
