Caught the March update from Blackland and I’m starting to think my long recovery from RAD might be in peril!

Not only do I see the polished brass blackbird is coming but now I see he’s got a slant on the way too!


Really excited for another high quality slant to come as I really enjoy the Wunderbar I have now.

Absolutely excited about the slant. I've waited on this one for 18 months or so.

What caught my interest more than anything was the "two additional razors". Nothing like a good tease.

If it all happens, Shane should have one of the largest product offerings of any artisan. Couldn't wish it upon a nicer guy too.

I saw the thread title and thought "ho-hum"

I've used a number of slants, both new and old and don't get excited for any of them.

YES! I’m extremely excited for this one. The best Slant I’ve ever used is the ATT S2, it’s smooth and efficient. I’m hoping Blackland’s version keeps the Blade rigid by torquing it, excited to see what Shane has planned with this one!

Nope, but look forward to reading what you all think of it. I've been on a self imposed hardware spending freeze for what I think is close to a year. I've been really close to pulling the trigger on a Vector or ATT Windsor a few times though.

I’m also really hoping for the blade to be torqued 2 ways as well because that setup does wonders for me... I seem to have quite tough beard and fairly sensitive skin so the super rigid blade edge feels way better to me. Ikon X3 and Razorock Wunderbar are two examples of this in practice for me.

I’m excited, too, but you guys are going to have to wait a while! It’s looking like a mid-summer release. It is a torsion slant (it twists the blade). There is some Blackland-style blade feel and I’m dialing in the right amount right now. Shave geometry is close to complete and then aesthetics will be tightened up, handle included. Then we’ll get rolling.

I don’t think the slant will be the most exciting release this year. You guys are going to be really surprised with one big project what I’ve got cooking, in particular.

I sense an adjustable. Thinking out loud here - BlackLand already has - a GEM, a Feather AC, Two regular DEs. A Ti razor would be nice but I personally don't find that more exciting than a slant. A true injector?
