I know that ideally it should be little to none. If a new razor was purchased and properly maintained it should go a lifetime with almost no hone ware. But too often this is not the reality. Especially with estate razors. Often they are in properly honed, chipped or otherwise in need of serious attention. This type of service results in obvious hone ware, but is this bad? Lets face it, the spine will never ware out and the ware helps maintain the original angle of the blade.
I have read of techniques to avoid this but ultimately maintaining the ascetic sacrifices the blade angle. Isn't it better to have a comfortable razor over a good looking razor? Am I missing something? Many of my restored razors have hone ware, but they shave nice and thats the goal, no?
Here is a pax razor of mine - I love pax razors - it once had a frown. I bread knifed it then honed it out.
