Would you shave with this?

Found this advertised as a blacksmith-made razor:

Not sure it would be usable with that handle, yet I am still intrigued...

Thoughts?
 
I've seen that. It is awesome but no I would not. Tooooooo much smile on the blade. I would never want to sharpen it. I could get used to the handle.

I'm not afraid of the smile, because I have a pretty big smiling blade that is one of my most comfortable shavers, almost as much curve as this one. The only issue with this one I see is how the tail of the handle swoops so close to the heel of the blade. If the handle stopped right where it touches back to the shank I'd think it would be easier to strop and shave with.

Ask me about shaving naked!
People make razors like this because they can't make/grind proper razors. Tim Zowada forges razors, compare one of his to this one.

Cheers, Steve
