The Merkur Barber Pole Slant Bar Safety Razor (also known as the Sledgehammer Double Edge Razor) is a rather aggressive razor that requires an experienced hand and a light touch - beginners need not apply.The slanted shave head may look like a manufacturing error, but it's been carefully designed to impart a slicing motion while shaving. Used correctly it gives a smooth, particularly close shave that many say is unmatched by other razors. The handle is otherwise identical to the standard Merkur Barber Pole and it comes in a stylish chrome finish.

Based on 14 reviews

After reading the reviews I was a bit cautious about using this razor having used a more forgiving one for the past 15 years until I broke it but have been very impressed does an excellent job I use both the Merkur and Feather both no problems.Highly recommended.

Just tried the slant a ...

Just tried the slant a few time but now my go to razor. Perfect for my face. Weird design bu works for me. Love it. Mercur slant.


Merkur 39c shaves every bit as good as my boker straight razor but only takes a fraction of the time and far less aggressive, unlike all the other reviews I have medium to fine face fur and with the weight of the razor alone an only using shark blades i get a bbs, with 2 passes. No drag smooth shave, with slants its the blade that controls aggressiveness and theirs no blade chatter with the 39c. I am over 60 so the face fur isan't baby fluff, long live slants and thanks guy's at men's biz your great site with fantastic reviews from all lead me to the best razor iv'e tried.

Years of reliable use

I've been using this beauty for years. At first there was a learning curve with using a slant, and probably took me a couple of months to get used to it. Less pressure than a standard DE I find. Once the learning curve is over what a difference it makes. I use much less pressure to shave with this angle of cut. When used it it, it equates to less razor burn with just as close a shave if not better.

Wonderful Shaver to add to your shaving stable

The Merkur barbers pole razor has been my every day razor for a number of years, paired with the feather blade. With regular days off shaving, I introduced the Merkur slant bar to my stable and WOW does it do a great job, easily glides through stubble with a steady hand ! it hasn't replaced my daily barber pole...
