I would have reset the bevel, that would removed the chip I had bought one like yours
Beautiful razor man! I shaved with mine a while ago chip totally gone! I did reset the bevel after the cup trick and completely went through the progression on the lapping film.

The chip was so small that I figured what the hell. Plus I wasn't confident the"shave ready" edge was shave ready so yea I started from scratch following the method you detailed then taking the blade through the whole range from 12um-.3um except I finished on the .3um on top of the .5um instead of paper I feel it tamed any harshness down better than the paper.I never glass an edge. I just hone, beginning at a grit that seems suitable to the size of the defect. But what you did worked for you just fine, obviously. There are many paths. Some are better than others but many will getcha there in the end.
