I am.

It will be interesting to see what Greg comes up with and whether he is able to push the slant design forward from the current offerings made by Merkur.

BTW, isn't the slant head design patented by Merkur ? Or maybe it is a really old patent that does not apply anymore ?

This SLANT is bent to the right and can be used only by left handed shavers (that is how I interpreted the diagram)Huh

That wouldn't make much sense, the Merkur is slanted to the right and some others slanted to the left. They can all be used in either hand.

The slant won't be out until probably the summer.

I stared at that diagram for way longer than I care to admit without having the faintest idea how it was supposedly depicting a slant. Blush

No interest in slant at all. Greg mentioned doing an adjustable based on the Apollo Mikron sometime back. This razor would be much more interesting if made to me.

While at Pasteur's a few weeks back, I met the Ikon owner's brother who sells his razors for him here in the states. He says that Greg is working on a slant right now. It's not in production yet (as of a few weeks ago), but in development. He was quite emphatic about it being real.

That would be great but I thing a lot more expensive to make and sell. The slant sounds more realistic from a production and marketing point of view.

I believe a slant razor is an ingenious solution to a non existent problem.

This again?

Guess I'll have to say again that while it may be a non-existent problem for you, it does solve a real problem for many.

Ok, I'm one of many from all that I've read. No DE worked for me near as good as a slant. Why do you consider it a solution to a nonexistent problem? Is my technique just bad with other non-slant razors?

Edit: Squire, I didn't see a comment by you in the following thread so I'm not sure if you've read it or not. I'd be curious to see what, if anything, you disagreed with.

Sir if you have bad technique it isn't due to a razor.

The patronizing "sir", thanks. If it doesn't work for you fine, but I think it's in poor taste to say that the razor is a solution to a non-existent problem. That's like slapping the face of all those who find it works so much better for them than non-slant razors.
