Hey guys.

I'm looking to buy a Bakelite Slant. I know these are somewhat of a rarity but hopefully someone can help me out. The reason I am asking here is because I am not one for playing the IB game of 5 razors p/day.

PM me/post in the thread if you are willing to sell.

Thanks.

You might try Italian Barber. They were selling the bakelite slants which I believe is NOS made by Merkur. A really good razor. Good luck

Yeah, IB are doing 5 razors a day or so, so wanted to get a post up on here in case any gents from The Nook have a spare they'd be willing to sell Smile

Bumping is not necessary the same day you started this thread.

It's not a game; the demand runs in the hundreds of people and I only had 70 in the clam-shell case... trying to give everybody a fair chance.

Only other way was a lottery, but I don't have the time and resources to organize that right now.

I don't want to put them on ebay, because they'll get bid up to stupid levels and I believe the community should be able to get them at a fair and reasonable price. I'm not here for short-term gain or to make a quick buck.

Haha I didn't mean to offend, I know you are going about it in the most fair way. I'm going to try and pick one up from you, but if I can't then I will need to resort to the shaving community, so I posted this thread to see if anyone had any spares.

Please refrain from bumping. You may bump a maximum of once every 24 hours and preferably much less than that

I would recommend you just get it from IB. They are really nice slants and they are different from a slant like Merkur (and their re-branded progeny). They are milder and less likely to bite and the light-weight handle actually works pretty well as it keeps the head from bearing down too much.

Hi Josh,

I've been trying to get one from IB, but due to being in the UK, the timezones are off and when Joseph puts them up I'm usually at work (overtime and the like).
