Have one Friodur that shaves as well as any properly honed razor and that is very well. Wouldn't have any qualms about getting another one.

J A Henckels straights are all great, even before the Friodur. I have an NOS Henckels 5/8 and the 8/8 Henckels Friodur. Both are well ground, great edges, good steel. The NOS Henckels is much easier to hone than the 8/8, but the 8/8 is stainless steel.

Johnny, they are fabulous razors. I have one and love it. These razors take a sweet edge and are great shavers.

Johnny I've owned a few and they come with a good reputation and lots of admirers. PS only last week I was ask by a newbie straight razor user would I choose a razor as his first new razor, well I picked him a NOS Henckels 6/8 round point from Revisor and he loves it.

All I see on the Revisor site is Revisor razors. Am I missing something?

Good steel and if "Real NOS" they are great. Some of the "new NOS" ground from old blanks or using just the name are not as good!
Bye the way, the antique Henckles safety razors with the hollow ground blades are a treat.
YMMV

Johnny if the one I sent you in the link is not what you are looking for you can always try Ebay there's always a good head of Henckels razors on there and at this moment in time a few NOS ones.

I have a 6/8 full hollow Friodur that is a joy to use.
If I had to sum it in one word - refined.

For the 6/8 hollow category my RAD is gone.
