The German 37 slant delivers a great shave

with 2 comments

LA Shaving Soap Company makes excellent shaving soaps, and their Vanilla/Eucalyptus/Mint is a favorite. The menthol load is light, which I prefer, and the lather is really excellent, this morning worked up with the Plisson brush shown.

The RazoRock German 37 slant from Italian Barber is a bargain: $20 for the razor or $12 for the head alone. It’s a Merkur slant clone, and it delivers a really fine shave (for me, at any rate): totally BBS with no trace of a problem. I like the feel of the handle, as well. If you’re thinking about a slant and hesitating because of the cost, the German 37 is well worth considering. And if you have a three-piece razor, you can use your current handle with the German 37 head.

A good splash of Floris No. 89 aftershave to complete the task, and the day is well begun.

  1. Received an email this morning from Razor Emporium that they are coming out with an adjustable. Did you see this? It looks beautiful but at $249.00 I am out?

  2. I had not heard that. This is the razor, I presume. I actually used a prototype of that razor, which at the time was called the Valiant. Search the blog on “valiant” and you will find my posts on it.
