Weber needs to make a perfect slant! My Weber PH is my favorite razor and by a good margin. It just hits all the categories, at least for me. Perfect aggressiveness, smooth, great weight and grip, size, etc.

I totally agree with you.

The Weber was the second razor I purchased. (I only have three total.) It is also the only all stainless razor I have.

I like how easy it was to learn, how effective it is and how smoothly it shaves.

Mine wears a Bulldog handle but am wondering if the new iteration of the Classic handle would be a good addition. Smile

I found the Weber a good 'training' razor, it was so easy to get a good shave with one. However I moved it on as I discovered that more aggressive razors and open combs suit me best. Now if Weber made a Slant I would have to try one...Cool

Interesting. Sherlock Do you mean the new or the old version of the R41? I get great results from the 2013 r41 but I do wish that it was a little smoother. Undecided

I think I need to get myself a Joris.

Which iKon would you say was their most efficient and smoothest shaver? I have only tried the Slant and I did not care for it.

You mentioned that the Weber was prefered over ATT. Which plate did you try? There is a big price difference.
Thanks for the video.

Can I ask you whether you think the Weber is milder than the ATT M1? I've recently bought one but even that plate is a little too aggressive me. I'm kind of hoping the Weber will be better suited.

I find the ATT razors even with the M plate to approach medium aggressiveness. The Weber is definitely less aggressive than all the ATT razors. The ATT razors are marvelous crafted and excellent, but they are a little on the aggressive side for me. I tried the R1, M2, & M1 plates and they were all considerably more aggressive than the Weber razors IMO.

My favorite safety razor is the Aristocrat. #15 followed by my Ikon Slant. I don't find either one overly aggressive, but the Ikon can be a little finicky to set up!

Yes, I had an iKon slant and blade alignment could be tricky. Great razor though.

Would the 37c be a more aggressive razor?

It's not necessarily more aggressive but it is a slant razor so you have to keep that in mind. Have you ever used a slant before?

No, using an EJD89L which i am finding to be less aggressive as i need 4 passes or more to get a smooth shave on my head. Tried various blades but still the same outcome.

Some say the 37c or 34c are more 'aggressive' so to speak?

The 37c is a slant so it will be more efficient. The 34C may be a hair more aggressive than the EJ but not much. If I had to choose I'd go with the slant as it is more efficient and will be quite a bit different from your EJ.

Many thanks for taking time out to reply and give your advice. Cheers

I'd agree with that. The 37c isn't something to be scared off, they're efficient, not aggressive. Just focus on technique and pressure with it. I'd be one happy person if the 37c was replicated by someone in stainless with a typical bulldog handle.
