    Isn’t that the point (pun) behind the design of slant DE razors?

    Angling the blade increases the cutting ability and edge retention imo. But the blade doesnt care whether its stubble or skin so be careful at first.

    I do that too, I got the general idea from your photo but I have to do a bit more slicing and a bit less downstroke so I sort of start where you did but make the angle much greater.

    Although as some have mentioned, i should stry stetching the skin in my neck more, funny I stretch the rest of my face but completely forget to stretch my throat.

    Sure is but you can get the same effect with a regular DE/SE using the Gillette slide. It is a damn sight safer with a slant though because you are not moving the razor itself diagonally on the stroke. With a straight razor it's probably even trickier.

    I hadn't actually heard of the Gillette slide but the technique took me a while to get right with my straights and without pink lather and i use a quite tight angle.
