I love the original version of Merkurs slantbar and own two them. It shaves close with two passes and I have never been cut while using it and any redness disappears by the time I wake the next morning. Merkur recently redesigned their slantbar and to me it has become too mild and requires more work to get a smooth shave. That got me wondering if someone is currently making a SS slant that has the same level of aggressiveness as the original Merkur slant? Thanks for any help!

I think iKon's slant is very close to the type of shave - could not tell you the model offhand but, stainless steel and of course the ATT S2 (I am trying an S1 now - great results as well but, the S2 is my goto).

Btw - I still love my Merkur slantbar - one of the best slant shaves in my opinion!
