    I seem to have become custodian of a bit of alloy that was torqued by tom. Torqued low on the right, at that.

    Look for me on slant threads tomorrow, Slantember 1rst. I'm kinda excited.

    I was wrong about the 'torqued by Tom' having an opposite twist. It is low on the right, looking at the comb. And low on the left, looking at the end of the head, as @RyX was apparently doing.

    The wantonly destroyed razors are opposite twist.

    I prefer to think of them as "Hard Luck" razors, but yes, the Gillette Slants are one of the rare 'left-handed' slants, and the only one currently in 'production,' if that is even the right word to use.

    Tourqued by Tom #3 of 4, my initial shave.
    Prep lather/wash: Proraso green
    Razor: tourqued by tom
    Blade: Astra (1)
    Hybrid lather: Tabac stick, Omega 10005, copper bowl
    After: alum, hops witch hazel, Pinaud VIBR
    CB9B2FEB-13D9-48DC-8580-6A873FFB39FF.jpeg

    Excellent close shave after two passes, about 30 hours after my previous shave. It was better than I deserved, as I was over-cautious for the first shave with this razor. My shaving angles were easily adjusted, with good auditory feed back and the increased tactile feedback I get with light razors.

    This is an aluminum alloy OC razor with the blade tabs fully covered. It has a significant blade gap, 8 teeth plus wide corner teeth, 90mm = 3 1/2" handle, diameter 12.7mm = 1/2". The blade is rigidly held between cap and plate with the full surfaces matching and mating flush. 61FC531B-E80D-4B51-8E2E-2FA1D00CA388.jpeg

    I'll join in. Bought this awhile back but haven't used it until today.
    Walbusch B5 adjustable, Bic Chrome Platinum blade, shave 2

    Razor was set on 3 1/2. At that setting it has plenty of blade, the blade being angled definitely mellows out what should have otherwise been much more aggressive of a shave. I got bit a few times something I've never had with any other slant. Unlike some other slants the blade it is not twisted to get the slant but sits straight on a diagonal with the cap being the guide for the proper angle. End result close but no BBS cigar for the shave. Next use I'll open up the adjustment all the way.

    Pears ~ Transparent Soap Bar / Wilko Men's Shaving Oil.
    Brush: Yaqi 26mm Rainbow Brown Synthetic. (Faux Horse)
    Face Lather.
    Soap: Razorock "What The Puck? !" ~ Lime Burst.
    Blade: Treet ~ Black Carbon. (1)
    Razor: Parker ~ 55sl Semi-Slant.

    The Parker 55sl Semi-Slant /Treet carbon blade worked really well together. I'm amazed with myself that i haven't used the Treet carbon blades more often that's what happens when you have a vast assortment of DE blades and reach for your regular favourites you completely forget you have other blades in your blade DE blade collection that are equally as good or if not better...'I live and learn something new with every shave'.
    A pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

    Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Creightons ~ Sensitive PSB.

    My face is feeling super smooth and smelling divine.

    Stay safe, and enjoy the start of the weekend ladies & gentlemen.

    Greetings,

    A wonderful shave to finish my shaving week off in style.

    Last outing of the Treet black carbon blade, which has performed wonderfully throughout the week. Another smooth efficient combo with the Merkur 37c slant mowing through my stubble with effortless ease.
    I've now found a de blade that pairs together superbly with all my humble slant razor collection.
    My SOTD's next week i intend to carry on with the Centwin Super Platinum, another subcontinent DE blade that i have only used a few times.
    Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.
    Finishing to the shave off with a few generous squirts of Tommy Hilfiger BOLD EdT to the pulse points.

    My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

    Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:
