Product Description

Released in September 2016, our new Slant Razor Head is a great way to try out a slant head design without breaking the bank.

The best part of the Maggard Slant is the price — $19.95 for the head alone.  The head fits on all major manufacturer’s handles, including all of the Maggard Razors stainless steel handles.  If you want to purchase one of our handles with the slant head, it will be listed as a choice on our full razor product pages.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR SLANT HEAD BEFORE PURCHASING

1)  This isn’t a razor for beginners.

We rarely recommend slants as a first razor to anyone; and the Maggard Slant is no exception.   If we had to give an aggressiveness rating, our Slant would fall somewhere in the 5/10 range (compared to our Standard V3 at 3/10 and our V3A at 6/10).  It is a comfortable and efficient razor — but, you’ll have to take your time with it, and it helps to build off of a base skill set you’ve already developed.

2)  It’s based on a vintage Mulcuto / Paul Müller slant that was produced in the 1930s.

Our Slant is based on the same vintage razor that the “iKon Stainless Steel Slant” was based on; but has several design modifications to enable mass production with the materials we chose.  The shave has a different, unique feel from other slants on the market, and actually ended up different from the razor it was based on.

3)  The head is made from cast Zinc Alloy.

Are there better materials?  sure.  But, we know that price is important for many of our customers – and at $19.95, it opens up the slant razor to a whole new market.

4)  The head sometimes requires manual blade alignment.

Although testers all said it wasn’t a huge problem, there is, without a doubt – a fair amount of play in the blade fitting.  Now — all slant razors typically have SOME play – but I would say that ours has more than the average slant.  This is due to the fact that the original 1930’s razor it is modeled from also had the same characteristics.  The two alignment pegs needed to be about 5  thousands larger to resolve this issue – but the costs to modify and re-tool were just too high, so, we decided to release it anyway, because we feel like the benefits of this head far outweigh this minor inconvenience. 90% of the time, you can load a blade without thinking and it will be just fine.  But, double checking before tightening down your handle isn’t a terrible idea.  Again, this is a trade off to meet our price target.  Every single head we’ve test fitted (and it’s been a lot, believe me), is able to be properly aligned with a small amount of effort.  The easiest way is to drop on the blade to the top cap, align it with the top cap edges, hold it there on the ends of the cap, and then put the base plate on and tighten down the handle.  If it still doesn’t appear straight, loosen the handle a couple turns and use your fingers to make slight adjustments.  If you don’t like this trade off, we wouldn’t recommend purchasing our slant razor.

With this release, we’re bringing Slants to the masses.

Materials:  Zinc Alloy with a matte gray plating.  The finish is the same as our popular V3A head.

Standard M5 x 0.8 threading

    Amazing item! It’s my first slant (purchased slant head + MR7 handle) and what I can say is I’m in love with it. Need a bit of practice but can give you supershaves.

    Great shaver.. It does take some practice to get the Blade straight but after that it does have a really efficient cutting power. Also, I felt it a bit agressive, but maybe I was using a Blade too sharp for my first shaves. Great product.

    Peculiar razor that takes a few shavings to get used to. I loaded it with a Feather blade and it cut through strong beard like nothing ever did before.

    Pay particular attention to the angle of that razor which seems to be quite narrow.

    I could have just done one pass and stop there but I did three: one down, one sideways, and one up with amazing result.

    This is definitely a razor for the brave and experimented shaver.

    Excellent head, but I must say one more thing: Maggard is for me by far the best store
    in every way, fastest shipping, excellent products, great prices and best of all unbelievable
    costumer service. Thanks Maggard!

    This razor far exceeded my expectations for a slant. I have several in my rotation but this is far and above, the best performer of them all. Recommend this razor to any experienced wet shaver for his rotation. I don’t feel the need to use a super sharp blade, middle of the road varieties seem to work just fine. Why raise the risk of nicks or cuts if one does not have to, right? Quality seems to be right up there at the top also. Needless to say, I’m impressed.

    I’m not a part of the cult of slants, however this head does provide great shaves. It’s also one of the most reasonably priced slant heads around. Shaving angle is easy to find and intuitive and as long as you join the no pressure club, this thing will give smooth shaves with no blood. I read Maggard’s disclaimer about blade alignment, and I experienced no such issues. My blade has been perfectly aligned first try each time. For anyone that is interested in trying a slant, this is a perfect jumping on point. Inexpensive and great shaving. Can’t ask for more than that.

    I received this razor over a month ago. This is my first slant. I got it with the MR5 handle. I haven’t used anything else since. It gives a much nicer, closer shave than the Merkur 33C that I’ve been using for the last 9 years. I use it to shave my head too. Solid razor.
