I had my second shave yesterday with my brand new Slant. It was nowhere near as good as my first, and ate up my face a bit. I'm perfectly happy with my technique, so I don't think it was that.
I examined the head and blade, and noticed that, while aligned perfectly parallel with the safety bat, the blade looked "crinkled". By that, I mean when viewing the blade edge such that I can't see the top or bottom surface, it looks uneven from one side to the other, like a wavy line.
The other blade edge doesn't look like this, so I'm wondering if my Slant is faulty, and if it is likely that the vendor would replace it?
