Merkur, Double Edge Safety Razor, Slant Cut, Extra Thick Handle, Chrome-Plated:
Unlike the standard safety razor, the Merkur Slant features a cutting head with a distinctive safety bar that allows the blade to contact the face at an angle rather than perpendicular to the razor handle like most razors. The angled cutting action reduces the beard quicker and with fewer required passes to achieve a close shave. Men with sensitive skin that have difficulty enduring multiple pass shaves can benefit from the Slant because of the fewer number of passes required to achieve a smooth shave. If you are just starting out with traditional shaving, you would be benefit by purchasing a standard Safety Razor.
