    Very nice,,,,

    I would bet she shaves smooth too, as you can't help but scythe with her....

    Clean and tight work as always Alex...

    Your work always appears to be up to an exceptionally high standard, & this one's no different. I think I'm a little more traditional, but it oozes quality. Nice job!

    Thanks everyone! Yeah, honing isn't as bad as I had expected. It's really no different from any other blade that needs a rolling X... and let's face it, I use a rolling X on most razors I hone nowadays! Stropping is actually surprisingly not bad.

    I keep these things in mind when making a razor (comfort of honing/stropping) and this razor was good for me to see how it turned out on a blade like this. I of course wouldn't suggest this type of razor to a beginner, but for an experienced hone and strop user, it's nothing to worry about.

    Nope, a regular face would do fine...

    As glen said, you'd probably be seriously surprised at the shave ease due to the extreme smile... the curve forces you to almost scythe.

    Great stuff again Alex, I never doubted the hone/stropability.

    I'd love me one of those, I wish there was such thing as a razor library. I'd just like to try it! Beautiful work.
