Not to be crude, but I wish I had the cojones to give straights a go. They just are so intimidating and seem to require so much other "stuff" to maintain and sharpen. Super gorgeous straights man.

The box says 9/16 .... is it 9/16 or 11/16?

On some vintage razors the manufacturers would measure the distance between the edge and the middle of the spine, other manufacturers would measure from the top of the spine, hence the differences we see sometimes.

Interesting. That'll teach me for just measuring from the center of the spine. Biggrin

That wonderedge is stunning. Out of my price range, but stunning none the less.

Absolutely. I have a Goldedge and it gives a great shave, it's one of my favourites.


A question, though: can you say a razor is NOS when it has already been honed?

Well, technically it is not NOS having been honed, but the OP is very upfront about it so I see no issue here regarding that.

Me neither, absolutely not. It was really a doubt that I had, as I also believe that once honed they can not be considered NOS.
