This is a current ebay listing for a 2018 Hart Steel (Classic Shaving) straight razor.  Look at the spine and you will see extreme and uneven hone wear.  This is so bad I wonder if the owner put it to a belt grinder or other power tool.  Anyway, the description of the razor reads, in part,  "lightly used looks to be hardly sharpened or never sharpened maybe used a few times or not at all."  This goes beyond being a totally misleading description.

What's wrong? It looks like it's sharpened...maybe on a broomed concrete sidewalk needing repair...but someone tried Wink Smile

That looks more like a skewed razor than a straight razor...

Either the seller knows nothing about razors, or he's bending the truth into a complete circle... or both.

Unbelievable that someone would try to sell such crap as "lightly used." They didn't say it was lightly used by a gorilla.

Hone wear is bad, but I believe that’s the current factory finish....

Besides the really heavy grinder like hone wear the edge is just as bad and even has a slight frown, my guess is when it was released it might have been a decent razor as I would hope Hart would have never sold this like it is and someone or multiple ppl spent a long time trying to learn how to hone with lower grit hones
