    How would you even hold this to shave? I am curious about the idea of a micotome grind on something that long.

    You wouldn't - because it is not a razor. It is about as useful as a pork pie in a mosque.

    Monstrosity like this 6 blade razor? Or is this post referring to straights only?

    I must admit, I don't mind using a cartridge occasionally when I'm travelling, but I can't understand how the 6th blade will help if the first 5 haven't shaved the hair.
    It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice

    Probably unintentional, but that is a similar blade profile to a frame back I have, which I think often come like that.

    I have an 8/8-8/7 W&B FBO with that same profile. Fortunately, I got it with a huge lot of good razors so the price wasn't an issue. Now I just have to figure out how to proceed with it.

    That just looks like a nice old blade to me....nothing wrong with it...except for the toe, the profile looks similar to the GB Iron Cross I have.
