Coming sometime in 2013 there will be an iKon slant razor. This information is now showing on the iKon website with a sketch of the razor head. Anyone who loves slants should be very excited.

Just when I was about to completely give up on DE by selling my slants. Now I'll have to at least hold on to a few blades.

* SharpSpine goes to check out the head design.

Thanks for the Info.

I will have to save some pennies and to think that I just visited the site today but, was not looking at the various categories.

A Slant IKon would be nice since I have a Merkur and a Hoffritz.

If iKon can "out-slant" the Slant - they're going to have a pretty decent revenue stream for a good while. If it's successful, I would certainly not make it a "limited" run.

Bingo. Honestly if the OC and SB match my expectations I may actually get rid of hardware.

Slanty goodness would just be icing on the cake.

Now if someone would just make an injector clone with the injector sized (not Feather sized ala the Cobra)

I'm sorry. Here are some approved token replies.

1. WOW!!! I'm soo excited!
2. Slant in stainless. The first of it's kind. Count me in.
3. Will it be a 2 piece or 3 piece?
4. Will it be available as the head only?
5. Will the head symmetry be the same as the Merkur?
6. When will it be available for pre-order?
7. Machined or cast?

My guesses:

available within 6 months
full cast stainless steel (316)
3 piece
similar to the Merkur head (probably better)
price $125 (hopefully not higher)

A spaceborne SAR / slant razor. Brilliant!
