My wife kindly bought me a Merkur Slant for a recent birthday so now no longer needed.

 

Was a great beginner razor and convinced me to learn and stick with DE shaving.

 

Cleaned, polished, and sanitised ready to go.

 

Will supply with some blades that I found make beginner friendly to get you going.

 

Photos below, taken this evening:

It’s a simple tool and working perfectly!

 

Payment by PayPal is probably easiest.

 

Hoping £20 including UK postage sounds fair?

Hope photos are working? They are the main info I guess.

 

The thread link is basically people persuading me this was a safe and sensible buy....which it turned out to be

Without clogging up this thread too much I'm quite interested:

 

How faffy is this? What other equipment do I need, i.e could I use shaving foam or do I need special stuff?

 

How close is the shave compared to multi-blade?

 

Additionally, how does it compare cost-wise to multi blade options?

I really enjoy the process. I am now as quick with this as I was with a multi blade.

 

I have gone from having to shave every other day with a multi to keep the shave rash at bay, to now shaving daily and no rash at all.

 

You end up with smoother feeling skin immediately and I find throughout the day.

 

The blades make a massive difference. Some are scary sharp at first, these Treet ones are more forgiving. I went through a range and ended on the Feather blades with this razor before my new one arrived.

 

You need a brush (I still use a £20 cheapo which is fine) and some soap I bought soap in a wooden bowl for £15 in October and still half left!

 

It’s all very very cheap to run.

Not wanting to detract from the sale but a bit on DE shaving vs multi for @igm45

 

Multi blades pull the hair out of the follicle slightly and then cut so this can lead to ingrowing hairs or infection. DE just cuts the hair at skin level.

 

Best results are obtained with soap and a brush - Palmolive do a cheap soap stick which lasts for ages. As with anything, you can spend much more.

 

The resultant shave feels much cleaner than with a multi blade, once you master the technique.

 

Its a case of getting the angle right, not pressing on - very light touch and taking your time

Another thumbs up for DE razors - don't worry about safety or technique, as working dog says you don't press hard, just let the weight of the razor glide over your skin. Much cheaper on blades - you can get multi-packs off Ebay once you find one you like. And you're not chucking out plastic cartridges every other day.


Caravel, various drippers (v60, Wave, Mountain), Kinto/Wave kettles, Feldgrind, Hausgrind

Thanks for all of your help guys. I will have a think as to whether I'm prepared to fall down another rabbit hole obsession...

I've been doing some research, getting close to taking the plunge.

 

Reading the other thread. Did you get an Etsy bowl @working dog ?

Yep and its really good for lathering up the soap due to the lumps on the floor. You use less soap than you would with a smooth bowl. IIRC it was from Little Wren on etsy. I sent them a message and they made it to order. It will take a few weeks but its worth the wait. Cheap as well !
