Merkur Superslant

Although the designation Merkur gave to this razor is, as far as I know, unknown, it is commonly referred to as the superslant, as it's much more slanted than the regular Merkur slant offerings. These can be found in short screw and long screw variations, the one here is a long screw. The head is not the best looking in my collection, but until I find a better one this should do.

That would be an interesting find. Haven't heard of that one yet.
I've tested the Fasan 42 cap on the Merkur vv, and they fit rather well, which, with the fact the caps are dotted, makes me wonder: did Merkur get the heads from Fasan? Do Fasan exist with safetybar instead of comb?

When I got my Hoffritz, the first thing I did was to swap parts with the Fasan, and it was an almost direct fit. I don't recall if I ever shaved with the swapped parts, but I guess not since the caps would have been too similar.

I am pretty sure that there was no safety bar Fasan slant since you or @Jake would have found one long ago.
