Hello there, would like to buy some good condition 3 piece slant razors, is there anything out here that is as good/more efficient than a Hoffritz, thanks Frank.

Generally there are no three piece slants...the head is fastened to the handle so that makes them a four piece slant like the Merkur models.

Vintage Hoffritz travel slants are 3-piece, and were made by Merkur I believe. They are rather scarce ... but these heads work with the plethora of aftermarket handles available these days. Oh, and don't be alarmed at the prices they go for ... supply:demand!

I have a three piece Hoffritz in a travel kit.. Great shave, though I don't use it often.

I also have the two piece Hoffritz slant which I prefer, but sadly the plating is shot and i've been told it can't be repaired.

Check out Elite Razors and custom order a 37C or a 39C with a modified custom handle .....almost endless variety and you get a brand new unique razor for a modest cost and you can even talk to Robert and get something extra unusual ....shape,material and color.
