    maybe a stupid question, but in a razor of that style if the edge isn't even with the heel is that hone wear?

    I would say either hone wear or regrinding. The near-pristine examples I have seen all had either an even or slightly lower edge.

    Not a stupid question at all! In the beginning, when I first saw those ancient razors, I thought the same!
    But it is indeed mostly hone wear, or regrinding as "ScienceGuy" explained
