Not as sharp as I like out of the box, but after a hone session on my stones, this razor really gave a great shave. My other razor is a Spanish tip Boker 5/8 that sill gives me a cleaner shave. The build quality of the RA is better and clearly more one of a kind feel. I recommend and and very happy with my purchase. razor emporium was quick in shipping so that was great also.
I cleaned and dried this razor right out of the box. I did not strop it but used it and it shaved wonderfully. The straight tip did the job cleaning up in the cleft of the chin. A well balanced attractive blade.
