Sadly, I dropped my razor the other day and chipped the edge after it hit both the counter-top then the floor. Can this be removed in the normal course of honing, or, would I have to pay for a restoration?
Thats not bad at all. I estimate no more than 40 laps on a 1k stone to remove it and then 10-20 minutes of honing. Possibly less, possibly more, I can't actually say I keep count of my laps on the 1k stone... But damage like that is very minor in my experience and takes relatively very little time.
