what's your favorite slant razors? I'm possibly in the market to pick up a few and would prefer some recommendations before randomly buying some.

The only slant I own at the moment is an ATT S2.

Isn't that the daddy of all Slants these days?

I can't really offer an opinion as I don't own a slant currently. I have used the Merkur 37c and RazoRock Stealth Slant both of which I enjoyed for different reasons.

Good luck in your search Smile

Mine are easily the ATT S1 and S2. The S1 offers a stress-free autopilot shave and I can barely feel the blade. The S2 is better for days when I want an extra-close BBS shave. Both are fantastic!

As a great and rather affordable option, you might want to pick up an ATT S1. The shaving feel is totally different than the S2, and you'd only need the base plate since you already have the ATT slant top cap!

I have tried some different slants and must agree with NeoXerxes. The ATT S1 an S2 are my go to slants. The one coming in as second for me (or third Wink) is the old trustworthy Merkur 37C. It is a great razor for that price. I have a 4th gen Razorock Stealth slant that do not get much use at all. It is an OK shaver but to light for me and the head is a little to thick. Others I have tried are some old bakelite razors but do not think they work as good as the ones in the top.

The only one I have is a 37c and I love it! My first and more than likely my last. It saw action last night with a Balzano blade and a 4 day growth.

I have the ikon shavecraft #102 and its a really nice, comfortable yet efficient razor - I've looked at other slants but I just can't imagine them being as nice/nicer than the 102. My experience is admittedly limited as the only other slant I tried ever so briefly very early in my wet shaving journey was the Merkur sledgehammer (39C?) and it was, for me a bit frightening. My technique was at least partially to blame I'm sure but its not an experience I'd have looked forward to every morning. I returned it to the fellow who had given it to me - he'd had a similar experience with it. I've read several reviews of the fine plastic slant and some people seem to like it so that would be a relatively cheap experiment. I'm not really interested in the plastic razor mostly because I like finely crafted tools like the Wolfman, why would I put a cheap plastic toy next to him? Let us know what you settle on and how you like it.

Good advice thus far... bang for buck, the 102 is a very solid option per Marko 's comment. Plus with the aluminum head, it is somewhat unique.

If you want something a bit more aggressive the iKon B1 slant is a good SS option. Careful though, kitty has claws.

The one I am waiting on is the Razorock Wunderbar which the last I saw should be shipping in about a month. No idea on price point but it appears to combine some of the qualities of a Black Mamba with a slant config.

I've been following the RazoRock Wunderbar's progress on instagram and its one I will most likely try to acquire. Joe is assuring everyone that its going to be made in production quantities and that they'll keep stocking them until everyone who wants one has one. I trust Joe but the marketplace is a fickle beast so who knows if they will actually be easily obtained.

I have the ikon bamboo handle in black uberglide coating on my 102 and it looks cool.
