I just honed the last 2 razors I purchased. A Dubl Duck Wonderedge ($$$) and a Torrey hollow ground ($5 at an antique store). I shaved with both after honing and there is virtually no difference in the quality of shave!! Both sides of my face feel fantastic and little to no razor burn. Both performed well WTG and ATG. The DD may have been a tad smoother ATG on the chin but its debatable. Oh well, just making a statement that other than the gorgeous bling of the DD, I can't tell the difference in results! Of course $5 for a Torrey in good condition is a steal but it would still be a whole lot less than the DD.

Not complaining at all though! I have 2 more sweet shavers in my rotation :)

CHRIS <> Truly exciting to watch your SR evolution. Glad to hear your finding razors that fit your skin type, shave style, and facial structure!

Thank you and me too!! Its been a truly humbling experience at times but it has been a blast! I'm still learning honing and it is quite rewarding when you get it right and get an outstanding shave from something that just a few days/hours/minutes before was just a ground piece of steel asking to be used :) I'm still experimenting with makers, grinds, etc. but found that even though my beard prefers heavier grinds, there's nothing like the combination of feel and sound from a full or even extra hollow grind. Of course now that i've been experimenting for a few months, I need to thin the herd a bit...:lol: My GF is already making serial killer comments :P
