*call it an entry level Slant or just a super smooth and efficient safety razor.
We designed this to be a real crowd pleaser as it is very user friendly.

This is a spectacular razor. It delivers a smooth yet efficient shave that leaves me smooth as can be with two passes. The razor feels awesome on my face. I have a large collection of vintage razors, so I typically only use a razor for about a week before changing things up but I have no plans of putting this one on the shelf for a long time. I read a lot of hype about it before pulling the trigger but I am happy to say it lives up to the hype.

New DE user, this is my first razor. Bought after carefully reading reviews and considering my face (moderately tough, dense, Italian beard). I’ve been using it for a week, and on two-pass am getting much smoother, cleaner shaves than with my previous electric razors—and I’m still on very gentle blades and learning technique. Much prefer the feel/heft to my Dad’s old razor. Thrilled. Great quality product, fast shipping.

I switched from cartridge to DE about a month ago and have 2 nice DEs (Standard Razor and Feather AS-D2). I read about slants, though, decided to try the one that appeared to be the nest and watched for the 102 to become available so I could grab one. I read that it’s not a good beginner DE, and all the other cautions and opinions, but the one thing I learned and applied is to be baby gentle with it. (My son has a Merkur slant and hates it because it “butchered” him—but he’s impatient and has a heavy hand).
So, my second shave with it this morning and I love this thing! Had 2 slight weepers yesterday and nothing today. I’m a bit fanatical about getting close shaves, and this one does it better and in less time than the other two–which I may never use again. I don’t have an especially heavy beard and find–like with any fine piece of cutlery–if it’s carefully wielded it does all the work for you. So today I’m ordering a second, but this time the Original Slant. I want one my grandson can inherit. That will also allow me to loan my son the 102 while I still have a slant to shave with. (Unlike anything else he’s ever “borrowed” from me, though, this WILL come back.)

This razor gives me great results! It is super aggressive so I do not use it as my daily shaver. When I do use it the results are much better than anything else that I have. Take you time with it. I normally make 2 passed with my daily shavers. With the Icon 102 I can do 1 pass and then a clean up pass and get that baby skin smooth finish.
