    "Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone were I begin to set the bevel. Once the bevel outline is finished I move onto the Chosera 3000 where the bevel is cleaned up and refined. Next its on to the polishing stage which starts out on the Aishyama 6000 and moves to the naniwa 12000. After the 12k, a perfectly good shave can occur. But we like to take it one step further and finish with a high polish on the Suehiro Gokumyo 20000." Eric, Razor Miester. After honing, the blade is stropped, oiled, and arrives shave ready! Please do not strop this razor before your first shave.

    Sharp

    Just as sharp as any DE blade that I have used in my shavette. It's not as comfortable for me as using my DE because it shaves closer. I have been using it for about a month and I have gotten a few cuts on the way but I lived to tell the tale. Great SR and great honing by their honemiester.
