I'm curious what blades other Slant users prefer.
My Slant is my preferred razor but I've found blades that work fine in my other razors don't necessarily work so well in my Slant. And it's not only about sharpness because Feathers are very sharp and they are my favorite for any of my razors. Also, people go on about how good a blade is and I try it in my Slant and it's either so-so or it's awful. Likewise people trash other blades and I find I like them.
So, if you routinely shave with a Merkur Slant, tell us your favorite and least favorite blades.
2. Dorco ST301 Platinum Extra (not the ST300 Platinum)
3. Probably Derby but I read there may have been some recent problems
4. While both these give me a decent shave, I can't really tell any difference between Crystals and Generic Platinum Chrome (I think they're Personnas)
Blades the didn't live up to their hype: Astra, Treet Dura Sharp, Wilkinson
