So I had the Revisor 6/8 square point on the rotation yesterday and while shaving I lost grip and the shaver dropped into the sink.  That infamous "ting ting" as it bounced off the sides of the sink and came to a rest.  I just cringed and while it was falling I fought the urge or instinct to grab the razor because that is how you end up in the ER with many stitches.  So I grab the razor once it comes to a rest to inspect it an hope there is no damage to the edge.  Well, no such luck.  The very tip was chipped and immediately I knew I no longer had a real square point anymore.

I eventually get to the razor that afternoon to do a complete reset of the bevel and figure out the tip.  A jewelers loupe inspection and yes, I have to mute the tip.  So to the 1000k stone to start the rounding process to minimize the amount I would need to do.  So I carefully drag the edge point along the stone then round it on the end stroke until the jagged tip is perfect and turned. 

I go to the process of setting the bevel per Lynn Abrams method through a full progression of the stones.......1000K; 4000K; 8000K; then I use the Thuringian to start the final edge then finish up on the Naniwa 12K stone then put the blade to a .50 micron pasted leather paddle strop then to the plain ole leather.

In the end it was back to whacking or "tinging" arm hairs I say again.  I just hate I had to mute the tip.  But it could have been worse I know!

She is a real shaver just minus the very fine square point that could pluck a single hair with surgeon like skill.
