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.

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 safety 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.

A very nice shaving experience, closer than the SR71 with no blade wiggle.

This is a great razor. Blade alignment is fine in mine.With a MR11 handle it is a joy to use, an effortless and irritation free shave.

Great chrome finish on Maggard slant head. It takes a few shaves to get used to the slant head. However it is very smooth from the 1st shave. I found it took me about 4-6 shaves to constantly find the correct angle and get a great close shave. With this slant being smooth it helps reduces/eliminate irritation. I found this on my sensitive neck which has course hair. Great razor head at a good price!

Background: I own and use several Slant DE + cut throat razors. The Maggard slant is the best of the whole bunch I own. It delivers a BBS without being too much aggressive, it's a pleasure to use it. Outperforms my other slants (37C, Mulcuto, Apollo, Yaqui, Sword edge). Delivers a close shave comparable to the MH41 (so far the top of my pile) without hurting my skin. Maggards, you have made such a great tool, my compliments. Walt

I wish I would have found this years ago. It would have saved me a lot of money on razors. This design produces an effortless, super close shave without irritation.
