Slant: Only or Rotation?

Almost Exclusively...

I have two slants, the HD and Barber Pole. They get the brunt of the shaving duties. I will also rotate in a Futur and a 12C.

I will also try some Gillettes, like the Vampire Diplomat to compare the shaves.

So far, the Slant is still king!
 
I've got a barber pole slant, a vintage Merkur slant, and there's a Pomco slant on the way right now. I've also got a WWII German bakelite slant that is not usable due to a series of chips along the end cap. I still use all of my other DE and SE razors too though.
 
I am a straight shaver who uses my gold slant when I am pressed for time or simply want a change. It's a fantastic shaver. I get a BBS, long lasting shave with no irritation.

I would keep a slant in the rotation if I still owned one... It's a great razor to shave with but I prefer open combs!
 
I use a HD slant for more than two years now and it is my daily shaver. I have also a Hoffritz slant and a vintage Merkur. Those are rather backups and collectibles. I have also a slim adjustable and a fatboy but they are not in use anymore.

Sooo, you are the lucky one! I was watching it, but it slipped my mind and I didn't remember it until after it ended. :cursing: I have been watching for them and I think that you got the best price that I have seen in a while. Of course you would have paid a little more, if I had not forgotten! :wink: Be sure and let us know how it shaves for you. Still undecided between a vintage and a new one. Your thoughts on the subject? :biggrin:
 
It's in my rotation. I use it on days that I have very thick stubble (i.e. my day off), or when I feel like changing it up. I've got about 8 razors, but only 6 are in the rotation right now...

So do you use your Slant as a two-day beard shaver only and not as a daily?

The reason I ask is the Slant may be to aggressive for my skin as a daily razor but may be a great heavy beard day shaver.

Still I'm keeping an open mind about the Slant as I be trying it later this week with Feathers blades for the first time.

Yeah, my stubble gets tough, but my skin is a tad sensitive. Also, I've just recently used my Feathers to great success. The next step is to use them in my slant....:scared:

It depends on my mood. The vintage one I have is smaller than an HD, so it's a much different weight and balance. Once the Pomco gets here I'll have one of each size. :biggrin:
 
My rotation is based on where I am; if I am at our vacation/retirement condo where the slant is located I use it every day. Starting week four now.
