    Anyone buy one yet? To my knowledge, Lee is the only one who has them so far. I've decided to wait for QED to stock them because Charles has some soaps I want to buy. I can't wait! :D

    I heard they were available but as of yet I did not know where.

    I'll give it some thought... they are a cool idea!

    Very cool idea, I really like my slant and my 38C...it may be the best of both worlds? :D

    Hard to resist; just picked up my slant today and got close to a BBS shave after 3 months of wrestling with a straight.

    Seems like the slant is still the king of closeness for me.

    I got the 39C. Seems very aggressive, but I had also shaved yesterday (first time two days in a row- I couldn't wait to try it)

    I'm not used to the long handle (34C up to now...), but so far I like that aspect of it.

    Blade was a gillette sweedish. Going to keep at it, trying various blades, etc.

    Sure is a beautiful piece of shaving equipment. It's so solid I think it tips the scales around 2 lbs...

    Have you tried the HD Slant? I'd like to get a comparison of the two.

    The Slant is great razor. It is very aggressive and should be treated with respect. Got a few nicks first time using it. No problems since.

    no, I have not. Went right from the (short handle) 34C to the (long handle slant) 39C

    That's good news.

    I got 1 small nick out of it, but It feels like some general burn.

    In a B&B review, the member said it was more aggressive than the HD Slant. The heavier weight makes it harder to maintain light pressure. It won't be so easy to transfer from the original to the new model. Then again, that was one person so YMMV.

    Only in normal Barber Pole though it looks like. Maybe slant later?
     
  13. A true red/white barber pole would be something to get excited about ! When is that coming out ?

    I'll be extra careful. Thanks for the heads up about the weight.

    It's a joke, son. :rolleyes:

    No weight to a Mach3, no wait (no line forming) for a Mach3.

    Maybe there should be.
