Merkur Heavy Duty Razor with Slant Bar #198 3″

A fine razor designed for a lifetime of use, the original Merkur Slant Blade is still one of the best safety razors available today. This is the razor that men the world over have learned to shave with for nearly one hundred years.

The Slant Bar is made with a larger and heavier handle for those who like a bit more to hold on to as well as a uniquely designed `slanted` shave head that imparts a slicing motion while shaving, allowing for a particularly close shave due to its ability to glide along the difficult curves of the face. It is not for beginners. This model has a reputation as a very aggressive shaver and recommended for men with a particularly thick or coarse beard.

    Krackow’s review of slant bar Merkur I have used several of these razors over the course of more than 20 years. I am talking specifically about the Merkur Slant-bar. I see that people are uncertain about the rationale of the slant. It is simple. When pulling straight down, the blade is positioned so that it is cutting on an angle and giving a functionally sharper and possibly softer or gentler cutting of the beard. You can really do the same thing with any other shaver by just holding it or pulling it at an angle. And, you…
