Vie long 50/50 brush
Feather blade
C.O. Bigalow shave cream

I've been using a futur and just got my first slant bar from west coast shaving. I was very surprised by the following:

1. How small and light weight the razor was.I felt like the small size gave me extra control.
2. I was prepared to finish with grinder face especially since I was pairing with a feather. However I only ended up with 1 minor nic due to improper angle under the chin. I took 1 stroke too long from neck to chin without turning my wrist over too maintain angle.
3. I thought it shaved easily .
4. No one should be afraid to use a slant bar and I would recommend it to beginners.

Congratulations on your first slant shave. You use the slant like any other razor that is no special angle is needed. The 37C is a very nice razor and has an excellent trip. Continued success.

I think it's a great razor too and not aggressive or scary at all. It's a very smooth razor.

The slant is a very efficient razor that offers very close and smooth shaves with little effort, you just have to pay attention to your technique a bit.

It sounds as though you had a very good first shave with your 37C. Keep at it, the shaves only get better with time. Cool

The slant is certainly nothing to fear. It was the only DE that could come close to working for me.


Yeah, I broke down. It's Tapatalk 2 for iPhone.

(Don't tell anyone but) If someone put a gun to my head, I might say I enjoy using the (37C) slant more than my Feather SS. They're great performers.
