    The Merkur slant works best with a dorco blue, for me at least. I tried the Gillette Slide on my first use of my slant...........

    Don't try that!

    Hi, my first post here. I got a Parker semi slant with graphite handle today and used it ever so carefully. Two passes only and I was BBS. No tugging at all. It really works!
    So far I've used a lord L6, merkur 34c and was happy with the parker variant. Now a new love.
    I have a birth quarter slim coming in soon but this Parker semi slant is amazing. Only been using a DE safety razor since December last.
