Found a pair of these out in the wild today, very surprised to actually come upon two Ziglar Slants! I find these similar in design to the Mucuto slant, as it too was a cast head. These are even more curious to me due to the open comb in combination with the slant bar. Enjoy Gents!

Sweet find, Jeff. I've never heard of the Ziglar. Interested to know how it shaves.

Very cool! I have a bakelite Fasan Open Comb Slant but this is the first all metal open comb slant that I have seen. I am looking forward to the Stainless Steel Tradere Open Comb Slants.

Very sweet.. They do shave well. I prefer it to my Merkur OC slant, but the head is huge!

I have only seen the one that I have! (Cooncatbob once had one as well, but it had an unfortunate plating incident.)

Phil, I almost picked up a Fasan a time or two; however, the bakelite and plastic razors I am worried about breaking.

4 slants (OC Merkur, Vintage Merkur, Modern Merkur, Ziglar) As you can see the Ziglar head is huge and is a different angle than the Merkur slants.

The Tradere slants will be open comb?!?! Hello Christmas present 2012. I hope anyway!

My thought as well. A stainless OC slant would be an awesome Xmas gift.
I would love a stainless injector slant.

I was almost distracted from your wonderful collection of slants by Phil's anticipation of the Tradere slant.
