I posted this razor a while back when I received it. I had set it aside, as I have several razors that I am rotating through. I decided to put it into my rotation, so I took it out to hone or touch up. The razor was purchased NOS unhoned. But I remembered that it was tree topping when I first took it out of the case (you can see some hairs in the photo). So I thought I would check further before putting it on a stone. I tried the HHT. To my surprise, it was clipping hair out at 1/2 inch with 4s and 5s. So it looks like it is strop and go! That's a pleasant surprise.
