The Merkur Slant Bar Double-Edge Safety Razor has an amazingly crafted angled blade guard that performs a slight slicing movement while you are shaving, resulting in an unbelievably close shave. This particular razor is known for its aggressiveness so would be perfect for hair that is thicker or coarser than usual. However, don't be too afraid of it - paired up with the right blade, it is known to be great for sensitive skin too!
Many times, you'll read stories on shaving chatrooms about how this is some hard to use razor or it shouldn't be used if you're new to wet-shaving. Worry not- with the same attention to your angle and pressure applied during the shave, you should be able to get great results with this even if you are a beginner at traditional shaving.
Often paired with Feather, Kai or Gillette Platinum blades, the secret to a close shave without irritation is a sharp blade and few passes. Many people talk about the multipass shave, and while this is great as a general rule of thumb, it can sometimes cause irritation if you have sensitive skin or a course beard.
Enter the slant razor - this was designed to just do 1 or 2 passes and deliver a Baby Butt Smooth (BBS) shave with ease! This razor will accept all standard double edged blades.
