Looks like there is a new Merkur Slant out and about.  Bottom cap is definitely redesigned a bit and from early reports a bit milder shave.

I would presume new molding/casting equipment resulting in better plating. 

They needed it.

Jumping on a plane shortly but just saw it. New teeth on comb and reports are it's designed to be a smoother shaver than the original.

This is NOT my picture, I grabbed it from the internet. The redesigned 37C is on the left.

Very interesting.
I'm wanting to buy a backup 37c so I'll have to track this new design down. Thanks

I would assume if they did this to the 37c then its the same for the 39c?? Interested to see these pop up. Thanks for the info.

Wonder if there's any way to know which one you're getting until you get it. Amazon for example, I'm sure they still have tons of the old ones in stock. You'll probably get one of those if you buy from them, until they run out of them.
