    It was my favorite razor until I got the R41. After I shaved with my 37c I couldn't go back to my 34c. Compared to my R41 it's actually somewhat mild. It's bark is worse than it's bite which yields a great shave. Have fun!

    I have the regular 34c and it's twisted brother (whatever name he carries. 38c?). I like them both, but I find the shave from both on a par. Neither seems better than the other. Perhaps the slant does the job that bit easier though.

    Had a shave this morning with my Merkur slant, LOVED IT! I used a new Feather blade, had a week's worth of growth and Philosophy's Razor Sharp shave gel and ended-up with a BBS shave; the Merkur w/Feather blade mowed right through it!

    I must admit, I used a Personna Red with the slant a couple of times, did not get a close or comfortable shave than with the Feather; you need an extremely sharp blade and a steady hand and you will end up with a satisfying shave. Finished with a Rose scented aftershave balm (actually, it was a hand lotion) but it did the job wonderfully.

    You can't beat that Slant as far as I'm concerned for DE shaving.

    Yeah That! Absolutely love my 37C. The Dorco blades that I can get locally work fine but one of these days, I'll get some Feathers. Sounds like the consensus here is that Slant + Feather blade = dog's bollocks.

    I have both the 37C and 39C. I find that I like the longer handle a bit more, but they both shave fantastically. I used to use Feathers until I discovered Polsilvers.

    I prefer the longer 39C handle too.

    Probably some people who started shaving with a short-handled Gillette Superspeed prefer the 37C because that's what they're used to. I switched over from Gillette Fusions, which had the longer handle, and I'll guess why I like the 39C better.

    I got my 37C a few weeks ago and I love it! The only trouble I've had so far is getting a straight cut right below my right sideburn, but I think practice will take care of that.

    I've been using a 39C with feathers now for a while. It shaves awesomely. Getting the sideburns square just takes some time to get used to. The nice thing about a bad shave is that it only takes a few days (at the most) to recover from.
    The problem I have with the 39C is under my nose. I have a few whiskers that are up really tight. No amount of angling seems to get them. I hate to admit it, but every now and than I resort to a Bic Metal to clean up the details...

    I just got a 37c and shaved with it for the first time yesterday. It's a terrific shave with a yellow 7 o'clock. I don't find it particularly more aggressive than Gem SE's. It's definitely worth the purchase and is in my rotation of favorites.
