Also quite a few of the 'no name' slants or 'twisted head' as the older collectors used to call them. Who knows, I may return to shaving with a DE on occasion so I'm hanging onto them.
    Wow, you were quite the DE collector! No wonder we're hitting it off so well so early in my "career" here.

    That's an impressive list of slant razors -- any chance you own an open comb version? If it's not too much trouble, could you post some pictures? I only have an HD slant, 39C (barber pole) slant, and a vintage NOS Merkur from, I believe, the 1950's.

    Here are a few slants with the one on the left being branded with the Pomco label but not made by Merkur. The one on the right is a Merkur branded as a Pomco. The gold one is a Merkur marked 'Brumml-Sausalito-Calif over West Germany'. The ones in the spoon rack are all 'no name' slants made in Germany. Probably pre war. The photo at the bottom is an open comb slant marked AF,CO on the case and Made In Germany on the razor. Maker unknown. If you were to go to B&B and do an advanced search for slant under Slant-Fan I've posted more photos of various DE stuff on that forum back some time ago.

    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Fantastic Jimmy! Thanks for the pics! I have never seen a razor quite like the Pomco on the left in the first picture. If my eyes aren't deceiving me, is the head actually in a curve rather than the typical slant twist?

    The one on the left was actually advertised as "The Lady Pomco" and has one side with a twisted or slant head and the other straight or 'normal'. It is scary looking when you're approaching your physiognomy with it.
