Maybe you SLANT Owner might chime in in look at your images of SLANT RAZOR HEAD are my eye playing tricks. Appears if Razon head was on FLAT SURFACE. ONE side of top would be high than other, thus name SLANT.
It does look that way but it is hard to show how they machined it so I found a picture that might help you see they are not machined the same where the blade is clamped. The bottom of the base plate is machined flat that gives the impression it looks like a regular razor but it is a torsional (helical twist) where the blade is clamped. I hope this helps you see it better as a slant razor, some fellows when shopping have mentioned it looks like a regular razor but it is not!Maybe you SLANT Owner might chime in in look at your images of SLANT RAZOR HEAD are my eye playing tricks.

Hello Sid, I do not find CeraVe any thinner than my other balms I have used. You are correct at guessing why I switched to CeraVe from others it is because it makes my skin feel better after a shaves, it is formulated better with the Hyaluronic acid and the other ingredients and does not leave my skin oily is the main reasons.
I used Nivea sensitive skin balm for years and it was OK and then I got on this Hyaluronic acid kick that other members where claiming about its wonders for healthy skin, so I bought a small bottle and found it really did nothing I thought and then one day I decided to try some with a dollop of my Nivea balm and it was amazing the difference in skin improvement just from a shave so was sold on that idea.( you should add Hyaluronic acid in a small percentage to main lotion.)
I knew others where using CeraVe moisturizing lotion with good results and was already using the CeraVe hand bar cleanser as a pre shave wash and it is a very good product also from 3 + years of using it.
About 2 years lather Nivea has come out with their version of the Hyaluronic version of their balm have not had a chance to use it yet, knowing Nivea they got it right so if price is decent might have to try some.
CeraVe as per cost of use is really decent and other manufactures will struggle to meet that price IMO. Hope that helps you, CeraVe is used by millions of folks from women to men & children around the world so they have earned a great name for skin moisturizing cream and other products.
That is the stuff I use and you do not have to use daily, it works well has been my experiences. You are correct in new package labeling, I have not seen the Daily before on labelling.
Thanks, I'll pick some up. I'm always on the lookout for ways to improve post-shave. My skin is of average sensitivity, but an OCD-like insistence on BBS with every shave and a need to experiment with new products (instead of sticking to a razor/blade combo that I know is low-irritation for me) frequently lead to irritation on my neck.That is the stuff I use and you do not have to use daily, it works well has been my experiences.

They might look similar but they are slightly different, ATT S1 has a scalloped bar and the safety bar is not as slanted + there is a lot of blade clamp over hang underneath the top cap on the S1. ATT came out with their S1 around 2016 and the S2 is a open comb slant razor that is very interesting.I just caught up with the Yaqi Slope thanks to a @Ron R SOTD post.
This approach to giving a torsion/helical twist to a slant's blade was originated, to the best of my knowledge, by Stan of Above the Tie. The S1 and S2 are machined this way.
With ATT shutting down, I like that this torsion slant design is continuing on.
Well, both are CNC steel razors, but Yaqis are <1/4 the price AND often come mirror polished. Not hard to see why $200 unfinished razors are not finding acceptance.Not sure what happened with ATT. Any news about why they are shutting down? Just slow sales or something else? Granted, at ~$200USD, the market is pretty thin so, that could be the problem.
Enjoy, when I use it I just listen to audio feedback it seems to find the sweet spot for my self every time. Use a sharp blade and just enjoy the results is all I can suggest. I usually shave steep angle(riding the bar) on a lot of DE razors it seems and just ride the bar and when you hear the whiskers being snipped see what the results are and then just try riding the cap and see what happens with those results & pick what you like the most.At which angle to you shave with the Yaqi? It seems that it could handle a neutral as well as a steep angle.
I really enjoy those efficiency-aggression charts you make. If someone found a way to overlap all of them, we would all be buying only the right razors. I'm looking for your chart on the SS Melon, but haven't found it yet. *keeps looking.Enjoy
