Looks like a nice razor, Magnus. Is it hollow on one side and straight on the other?

Prep: hot showet
Cream: Arlington
Brush: Omega 636
Razor: Heljestrand frameback honed on Shaptons
Strop: Kanayama 50000
AS: Proraso splash

My first shave with one of the twins. this one was done on Shapton Pro stones up to 15k, then stropped on Hand American leather with 0.3µ AlOx and finally stropped on a Kanayama 50000. The resulting edge was sharp, smooth and simply perfect for me. Loved the shave and was actually a bit disappointed when it was over.
