    Welcome to the forum. I made the mistake of buying a renren too as my first razor. Foolishly, I just jumped right in, bought the razor and thought that I could crack on and SR shave. How wrong could I be!! I then looked to see where I was going wrong, found this forum and I've never looked back. I had my renren honed by celticcrusader (Jamie) a true honemeister. It was shave ready for about a quarter of a shave, then it lost its edge. Rubbish. Invest in a good, quality razor. Go slow. Enjoy your journey. Good luck.

    Just to add to what wayne394 said you should give this a read on Renren razors Renren Razor - a study of silk purses and sows ears . Maybe just start over with a known brand razor that has been made shave ready,

    On the plus side you already have one to learn to hone on.... might get plenty of practice with it

    Hi and welcome. Sounds like you can dull the edge on the renren by running on some glass and use it for stropping practice. Hopefully the Wade and Butcher is shave ready and you can start properly when it comes in. Good luck and any questions feel free to ask
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed
