The answer to this question is cool. One minor issue is that superscripts seem too close:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\newcommand\fakeslant[1]{%
  \pdfliteral{1 0 0.167 1 0 0 cm}#1\pdfliteral{1 0 -0.167 1 0 0 cm}}
\newcommand\mathbbsl[1]{\mathbb{\fakeslant{#1}}}
\begin{document}

$\mathbbsl{M}'\mathbbsl{M}^*\mathbbsl{M}^\dagger$

\end{document}

result of the above latex code

Can this be fixed? Thanks.

you can add an extra \hspace, and combine it to a new command:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\newcommand\fakeslant[1]{%
  \pdfliteral{1 0 0.167 1 0 0 cm}#1\pdfliteral{1 0 -0.167 1 0 0 cm}}
\newcommand\mathbbsl[1]{\mathbb{\fakeslant{#1}}}
\newcommand{\iwd}[3][0.01cm]{\mathbbsl{#2}\hspace*{#1}{#3}}

\begin{document}

$\iwd{M}{^*}$
$\iwd[0.02cm]{M}{^*}$
$\iwd[0.03cm]{M}{^*}$
$\iwd[0.04cm]{M}{^*}$
$\iwd[0.05cm]{M}{^*}$

$\iwd{M}{'}$
$\iwd[0.02cm]{M}{'}$
$\iwd[0.03cm]{M}{'}$
$\iwd[0.04cm]{M}{'}$
$\iwd[0.05cm]{M}{'}$


$\iwd{M}{^\dagger}$
$\iwd[0.02cm]{M}{^\dagger}$
$\iwd[0.03cm]{M}{^\dagger}$
$\iwd[0.04cm]{M}{^\dagger}$
$\iwd[0.05cm]{M}{^\dagger}$



\end{document}

    It would be much better to use a math space and mu units (or at least a font dependent space) rather than a fixed unit like cm so that it works naturally after a font size change such as \small or \large – David Carlisle Feb 27 at 9:45
