I didnt know
There went the vision I had of a NEW SC slant...For those curious about the Fatip Le Sorto vs. Old Type style slants, the Le Sorto is more like a Gillette New than an Old, and we can't bend the New, so they will each offer a unique shaving experience.
Good God man! TobyC just sat bolt upright in bed and doesnt know why! lolThat's a big reason why the Gillette Old Type was the razor of choice for this project. This changes the way it shaves. I'd say it "fixes" it, but people might get offended.
Well... more offended.
Old Types can be fickle. I mentioned my Single Ring in the other thread. It was unusable in the condition it was in. Once I worked it a bit it became quite smooth. My #1 DE is a Fatip Grande OC and that Single Ring is at least as smooth.
My made in Canada Old Type on the other hand is perfectly straight.
Thats the smoothest DE I've used. Because it is so straight and the blade is forced against the flats on the tops of the teeth in the comb equally for its width, I never feel the blade, even using it steeply. I only feel the teeth of the comb.
A byproduct of that makes it my most unforgiving DE and possibly even more unforgiving of weakness of technique than my GEM MMOC, which is my top dog. Does an unforgiving razor need 'fixing'? Perhaps, but it makes more sense to me to refine ones technique. That however, is a very high hurdle when using a Feather blade in that Canadian Old.
If you wouldnt mind, describe for myself and likely others how turning it into a slant would "fix" it. I'm not getting my head around the intricacies of it. Its not that I doubt you or am calling you out about it, I just need to understand lol. Theres a reason I'm a founding member of BOSC and it aint because I own 100 razors either haha.
