I spent a stupid amount of time try to find and buy an Ikon or Razorock slant razor... I finally just said screw it and bought the Merkur 39C. Its cheap, and easily available. I had a hard time deciding between this and the smaller handled 37C, but I feel like I have more control with the longer/heavier handles. I also just received more WSP Soap samples. This stuff rocks!

I have both the 37c and 39c and they are my go to razors. Good quality at a reasonable price + wide availability. 

I have no interest in spending more unless the shave quality is significantly improved - most reviews I've read report that it does not.

Exactly why I got the 37c also, good quality at a reasonable price and readily available. Turns out it is a very nice smooth and comfortable close shaver. No idea where it's reputation for being aggressive came from. I think you will enjoy the slant.

The 39C looks awesome! Enjoy it.
My only razor is a 37C and I have yet to receive a cut or irritation from using it. I feed it 3-4 days worth of salt & pepper stubble and the results are great. I can honestly say I have found "shaving satisfaction" with the Merkur slant. There's no need for me to keep buying and trying.
