Jerry, thanks for the excellent review! Never having used a slant, I've been scared of the idea of shaving with one. Now, I gotta say that my curiosity is piqued!

Is it glossy or matte?

It looks highly polished (glossy).

Nothing to be worried about. Slants shave just like a regular double edge only better in most cases. You hold and use it exactly the same way.

Hmm, since it seems that the iKon slant head will be sold separately then this may be the right time to give it a shot and prove my fears wrong.

Absolutely and if you don't like it you can sell it easily and recoup your money. A win win situation.

Just for clarification purposes this razor is fully polished. It is not matte finish.

I read this today on Ikons FaceBook page:
"iKon Stainless Steel Slant Production Update: we are in the final process of hand finishing the Slant heads, we'd rather not rush and have our products on the market with a substandard finish i.e. having inside of the top cap loaded with machine marks or selling them with lame faint knurling unpolished handles - we work hard and take serious pride in what we put our name on.

This should be completed @ the end of the month and then will need a bit more time for logistics and distribution to our authorized dealers."

Super good news! Enjoy.Biggrin

Very good news. Hopefully the razor will stand up to its hype.
