Just what I wanted
This is a wonderful addition to my growing razor collection. I received it yesterday and I have only used it once. But the first experience was great. A close shave with the Merkur blade provided. I am interested to try other blades, especially Gillette Silver Blue.

There should be no hesitation based on fear for this fine tool. I have a EJ 89L with which I have been very happy. My initial reaction is that this razor is equally well made and a fine companion. I don't have enough face with it time to grant it "favorite" status but was well pleased with my purchase.



I like the fact that this is a two piece razor and I don't have to juggle three pieces and a sharp blade.

Wide gap, yet not aggressive at all.
My wife bought me this razor for my birthday, and I've loved becoming acquainted with it- for me it shines with a silver-blue blade or something that sharp. I was a bit confused when i first used it, as it seems to produce a quite mild shave (a bit more aggresive than a gillette tech or maybe slightly more than my adjustable set to 4-5) which is counter to most of the reviews and opinions i've read about it- It seems to have a seriously wide gap and i think really the look must impart an "intimidation factor". But the head is so sloped (compared to say an edwin jagger d-89 ) that it seems that the blade as it exits the cap is more in line with the face and therefore cuts a notch less aggressively. My d-89 requires a slightly lighter touch and though it really cuts close, i wear any fault in my procedure, technique or blade on my face- and i really shouldn't do more than two passes most days. I can safely say, that the Merkur is more forgiving to me and i can self-butcher (even against the grain on my upper lip - an area of particular difficulty with my d-89) without fear of accidental slicing or irritation. Though it doesn't tend to cut quite as close as the d-89, my face is so relieved that i can work in some touch ups to the same result, just takes a little more time. Really well engineered cutting tool! Now if i could just get one manufactured in brass with nickel plating..

Wow, now that's a close shave!!
Guys, if you're looking for a close shave quickly, you should give this a try, wUsingwas using a Murker 34, and my normal routine was a couple of passes with the grain, a couple across and finish with a couple against the grain. Don't get me wrong, the 34 is a great razor; I was just looking to reduce the time, by increasing efficiency. I heard that this 34 was rated as a 2, where the 37 as a 6, on a scale from 1 to 10 for aggressiveness by other safety razor enthusiasts, so I thought I would give it a try.

Wow! What a difference! One pass with the grain, one against and I was done! Using a hot towel for cleanup demonstrated how close the shave was. Of course finishing off with some after shaving balm, and I was good to go.

This will be my go to shaver, and my 34 will be used for backup and more delicate areas.

Wow! What a difference! One pass with the grain, one against and I was done! Putting a hot towel

Superb Razor!
Just received the razor the other day and used it for the first time and WOW! I have never used a Slant before aaaaand did not know what to expect but what I got was the best shave of my life. After only two passes, I was baby smooth with no irritation ( a First) and thta was with a Merkur blade. I cant wait to try it with a Silver Blue. Awesome!

Close shave!
Yes this is an outstanding razor and gives a very close shave, probably closer than most with the slant edge. I've had to slow down shaving a bit and take my time with this model. It's one of several in the rotation but I do love it's close shave, probably as far as DE razors go, as close as you can get to a straight razor.

Do Not Buy This Razor!
The one razor lacking in my collection was a vintage slant. Couldn't find one in the wild and refused to pay the stupid money they were going for on ebay. I bought this almost 2 years ago. This razor isn't good - it's freaking awesome! It's beautiful, balanced, and shaves great. Why shouldn't you buy it? Since buying this razor, I have only used it and my 1956 Gillette Red Tip. Yeah, your other razors will get little or no use. I finally pulled out my 1918 open comb the other day and it was awesome. Your mileage may vary, so go ahead and buy this slant. But, you've been warned!
