First ever single edge... slant?! (by above the tie - the X1)

Yeah, haven’t seen anything like that. AC style blades are no joke. Scary.

Interesting. Wonder why it took so long for someone to try this.

It is my understanding that DE slants twist the blade to create a slant, not just cant it. Is it possible to twist a AC blade or is this just canted?

I had the same thought.  DE blades are thin.  I don't know if the thicker AC blades can be twisted.

Interesting - my impression always has been the DE slants were twisted/bent .. I just did a hands-on test of a Feather Super Pro and it can be twisted with my old a arthritic paws .. not as easily or as much as a thin DE but it does deflect

Yeah, I wouldn't think an AC blade could twist without breaking.

I just tried as well and was able to get a surprising amount of flex from a feather pro without approaching a breaking point. Same with a pro-super. I found it quite easy to twist them (with my fingers) well past the point that the ATT X1 head will without seeing issues. The pro-super is thicker and bends less, but still much further than I’d have imagined before trying it. Flex won’t be a problem for these blades in the new SE slant concept.

I’ve never used a DE slant, but the X1 is intriguing.

Nice test on the blade flex. that's making a good case for the razor, in my opinion. Good job.

Sounds promising!

In DE razors the twist is used to stabilize the flimsy thin blade.
I was always under the impression that nice firm SE blades do not need to be twisted to be stable.

Some of my DE slants are nice because they work at various angles, some don't. Not sure, why.

But an AC blade that bites at angles sort of scares me.

Interesting though...

I'm trying to phase out of the shavette scene, but this one caught me eye - I'd second Rodrigoqui in asking for the takes of those who have tried one ..
