After exclusively using the HD for a few weeks, Sunday marked my return to the slant bar. WOW! I forgot what a fantastically close shave this baby gives. I get a great shave from the HD, but the shave from a slant is so close it's almost spooky. Here I sit, 16 hours after my shave, and I have only the faintest of stubble along my jawline and under my chin. Very nice!
