Gents,  

My Shavesmith razor arrived today, and the seller said it was shave ready.  I had no doubt that it was ready to roll, but I have been finding that my little technique with the Zulu Grey and strop has really been polishing the edges, and leading to making them ridiculously sharp and silky smooth...despite having no real idea as to what I am doing!

To get this edge, I sprayed the ZG with water, and a drop of dish soap (I don’t have a DMT card to raise a slurry, and the slurry stone doesn’t work on this thing!). Then I did 100 laps on the ZG spraying water on the stone every 25 laps.  Then I hit the Tony Miller Heirloom Strop for 75 laps.

This was the result...

Well done Matt.  I'm glad the Zulu Grey is working out well for you.  Let us know how it shaves and holds an edge.

9/8 CarterMonroe from PA! This blade is a full hollow grind, and while the scales and polishing job are good, they are not the absolute best. However, the grind and edge geometry in my experience are completely unmatched! This might be the sharpest blade I have ever used!

The shrapnel in the background is from an IED that missed its mark South of Baghdad in 2005.
