    Yesterday's Shave;
    You can see the Razorock 37 German Slant right behind the QShave Scuttle leaning on the scuttle handle. I'm still on the fence with the slant, but so far I'm not getting a bad shave.

    PBOCS + a fresh Feather was too much of a good thing today. Very close shave, but it sliced off a little scar on my Adam’s apple. The blade has been immediately moved to the Merkur 37C.

    Sorry to hear about the scar. I use Feathers in all my slants and get great results. That razor is a favorite, mine is black. Light, lots of blade exposure, a Feather blade is where I'm at with them.
    Gets the head nice and smooth!

    Thanks. I figured I needed a slant to see what it was all about. Great for a two pass, but a third brings a pain I don't like. Like paper cuts all over my face.

    Another night with the slant. Did well this time. I was able to get a three pass in. Easy BBS.[​IMG]

    Great shave!
    Most of the slants, it's imperative to ride the cap, really ride the cap.
    Glad your shave Went Well!

    Already a player in the slant game. I have the Merkur and Ikon B1...I like both and get great shaves out of them. Any reason to get the RR Wunderbar as it is $99 at the moment? I have a feeling it shaves similarly to the Ikon? Anyone have both and can tell me? Thanks.

    I don't know how aggressive the B1 is but I have the X3 and can tell you that the Wunderbar is much more aggressive.
