This was truly a surprise, I've had this on a short list but didn't expect my wife would ever go for it. A Hart 6/8, my first real straight! I've been using a Feather AC with good luck, gave this a whirl tonight and it's an entirely different beast. I need my lather slicker and my angle different. I'm sure it'll come with time, so the good news is I was cut free. Touched up with my ATT S2 to get everything smooth.

A fun surprise for sure though.

Congratulations on the anniversary and the Hart! I've got my sights set on a Hart and with everything I've read so far, I think you'll really enjoy it. And the significance of it for you is priceless, I'm sure. 

Thanks for the pic. I've been trying to get different pics of these other than the stock photos.

Here is my review with a new picSmile.

Cool blade, fantastic gift, absolutely unusable edge. Out for a hone I guess.....can't pop a hair with the first 3/4" of blade on the toe end and pulls like crazy on the rest of the blade.

It's been said before Wink but hone it up and supposedly they hold an edge longer. I do not own a Hart...yet.

It happens.  I think I heard TI's are bad for not being shave ready also.  I have yet to figure why a manufacturer who turns out razors do not send them out honed and truly ready to shave.  But hey, send that puppy back to get shave ready and then you will be in business.  If you reach out to someone local who hones you may get it done quicker.  Just a thought.
