Blade honed up really well, Most of the shaving accomplished in one pass.
Having full control from setting the bevel to mirror finish and being able to use my own scales makes me want to quit my day job and work with Razors all day everyday. Should’ve been born in solingen Mitchell
more than excellent, after a few laps on my Belgium Cuticule, and my Translucent Arkansas sStones an final stropping the edge feels like it's sliding on glass on my face, best blade i ever had. the only complaint is that they did not include the pin to attach to the scales, they were supposed to send some but i have not received them

This straight razor blade is made of carbon steel with the material number 1.2210, better known as silver steel. In order to achieve a hardness of approximately 61 HRC, the material is heated to over 1000 degrees celsius and then immediately quenched with a special oil. The subsequent tempering at about 200 degrees celsius gives the blade elasticity and toughness.
During hollow grinding, the straight razor is ground concavely from the back to the cutting edge. This design combines great flexibility with high torsional rigidity in longitudinal form. Enjoy the satisfying sound and feel of a gentle shave from the vibration of the razor blade trimming your facial hair.
The round point is the classic shape for a razor and is suitable in most shaving situations. This type of point has been very popular for centuries, as the curved shape can be used very safely in the areas of the ears, nose, and dimples. Even in the event of a fall, the rounded head protects you from injuries.
6/8 inch razors are true all-rounders and can do any wet shaving task with flying colours. The blade is relatively heavy and can therefore glide gently over your skin without great pressure. At the same time, it is still nimble enough to manage even more technically demanding passages around the nose, ears, and chin.
