Typical Swedish steel.....
umm... bet honing is funny.......
...there is no razor...
I knew that Swedish was not up to par
Soooo.... how's the shave?
62 HRC, takes a wicked edge & still you are able to bend it 180 degrees, now that is what I call high quality steel
Let me guess. You sold it on ebay but didn't have the right sized box?
No, he sold it on ebay and made a $400 profit.
This is actually more then anything else a study in frustration.
I love this type of frameback, found a blade dirt cheap, made some nice customs cales & while setting the bevel discovered that the metal was rotten thru & thru.
Pitting was waaaay worse then what it looked like once buffed & polished.
So after finally realizing that this blade would never shave again I took my frustration out on it & noticed that I could actually fold it over with my bare hands.
It also shows just how soft the frame is on these & why it's a great idea to tape it while honing.
Is that Uri Geller's razor?
