    I would be happy to hone it for you. I'm in a funk as of late, and enjoy taking on a challenge to cheer myself. I'm no Holli4pirating, of Gssixgun, but I like to think I am fairly accomplished on the stones.

    These images probably got resized much smaller.

    Here's a link to the full size ones:

    Thanks Magpie for your offer. The problem with getting it honed is postage to India. It will cost at least $25 to send and get it back by registered post (everything unregistered goes missing here).

    edit: adding close up of the edges:

    (placed on glass, not all of the edge touches the glass. It used to touch even less at the toe and heel before my inept honing.)

    You need to make contact with the whole edge so adjusting your strokes to compensate is the only way.

    If I send one of my razors in need of honing to a guy here locally (who is not so great) it would cost me around 25$ with postage. So spending a 25 to get it professionaly honed sounds like a sweet deal to me. I understand that you have no money, but unfortunately there are no free rides, at least as wetshaving hobby goes.
