Collecting straights, SE's as long as they come with wedges and slanted DE's I hit a milestone earlier this week with the 25th of the latter. Time for a groupshot, I figured.

Oska (s) - Apollo (s) - Ras (d) - Sonnal (s) - unknown (s)
Fasan (s) - Golf (s) - Pomco (s) - Merkur 37c (s) - NeoGam (d) - NeoRas (d) - NeoLux (d)
Bonsa (d) - Mulcuto (d) - unknown (d) - Apollo (s) - Fasan (s) - Rot-Gold (d) - Doppelfein (d)
Ile de France (d) - Walbusch (d) - Dr Lay (d) - Hoffritz (s) - Ibsen (s) - Lutz (s) - Mulcuto (d)
(s= Slant, d=Diagonal)

Number 26 is on its way (iKon 102 head).

You really like this one ! In your words  "this would easily be my desert island razor head" 

I bought one and I'm waiting to get in and I would like to know what are your thoughts about the Lutz Slantbar razor on the orange box in the pic.

The Lutz is a tremendously efficient razor. It has two different sides, one way more aggressive than the other, which means I have to watch out a bit. Two passes with the aggressive side is too much. Starting aggressive and finishing of with the mild side however is perfect.
It's not quite clear who the producer of these razors was. The razor itself is unmarked, and I've had two unboxed razors, one a Romi and one unknown, that were 100% identical. I've been led to understand that even more brands carried this exact unmarked razor. The Oska, top left, is also the same but for the top plate. On the Oska this is marked with the brandname on the outside. Grip and bottomplate however exactly the same. Makes the razor 3 grams lighter. I've seen an Emir exactly like that, except for Emir on the topplate.

left to right Lutz, unknown, Oska, Romi.

The Ibsen I only acquired recently and is waiting for its first run on my face. So far, the most comfortable razors here are the Sonnal and the two Apollo's. These also score very high in efficiency. The most efficient razor is the all-plastic Mulcuto (shaves way different from the metl/plastic one). Two passes with that and you can be as smooth as with a freshly and perfectly honed straight. Unfortunately, it's also extremely angle-sensitive. Get your shave-angle only 0.001% wrong and you're in for a serious peeling.

Thanks for your input. I really like shaving with Slant razor.  I saw a video about the Lutz mentioned that reversing the side of the top plate changed aggressiveness as well.

indeed lorenzo - the lutz slant could very well have been my desert island razor head: coupled with my nonpareil ufo mokume handle, i have used it for all my shaves this year.


however, there is a russian made slant that is on par with the lutz slant - if not better; the pic shows it mounted on the mokume, while a lutz head have been degraded to travel razor with the 77mm colibri.

thanks efsk for all the information & pics - and i do hope you won’t fancy the ibsen - thus let it eventually end up with me Biggrin

Sorry Tonsorius! Used the Ibsen yesterday and it's a very nice if aggressive razor. As we say in Holland: not a kitten to handle without gloves.
It's also the quietest of my slants so far. Quite angle-sensitive but also very effective.

That's a very nice collection! Better not post any pics of your Wedge SE's and straights or they will brand you as a hoarder on the forum  Wink
