    Well I think you have proved them wrong, what an interesting transformation.

    Glen that's amazing. You're the first person I know that has done a restore like this. Congrats on a great job!

    Just finished the first shave, and as expected these things are incredibly sharp..I finished it on the Nakayama
    -but-
    I should also mention the Microtome conversions are not forgiving at all, you have to have a very light touch, and near perfect technique.. What I am saying is these are an Adventurer's razor compared to a Western straight, and even more difficult to shave with then a real Kamisori... They are a fun project, not something to seek out... That being said one multi-directional pass and I am good to go

    Superb work Glen, as usual. I am sure the owner will be very happy. So are you taking orders for "regular" western straight blades done in this style??
