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. Rather than chop the hair, a slant slices through it - akin to a giottiline!
But worrry not, this style of razor is also great for those with sensitive skin. The reason is you can get a close shave with less passes because the slicing acton is extremely efficient at comfortable hair removal. This particular razor is also perfect for guys with thick, coarse, heavy, curly or hard to tame beards! This razor will accept all standard double edged blades. Features HD Barber Pole long handle for an easier grip- great for guys with big hands!

I have used it only so far with Merkur blades; the razor is excellent and provided a pleasant job without irritation and mows very well. Highly recommended.
I really like the long handle Merkur razors. The slant cuts really clean and gives a great shave!
