i needed to shave today and what better way to do it then with a new test razor
im a fan of heavyer blades and this one is jsut short of an inch tall and a wedge grind (10" wheel )
its all belt finished for me to see about any rust issues compared to the cpm154 i had been making razors with. with the XHP i shoudl see smoother shaves and nearly as long edge holding but thats why i have this tester so i can make adjustments in HT
i had a bunch of claro walnut done by K&G and i love the way it turned out with even just a bit of oil and a light buff

MR. HARNER <> Were you expecting rust issues, and have you realized any?

nope im not expecting any but i test my work harder then i hope anyuser woudl be that cutting things that a kitchen knife should never cut or leaving a blade wet and putting it away to see if it rusts (often knives and razors get neglected and abused but i want to know if my tools can handle it )

I assumed a quality control measure, but I didn't know if maybe you were suspect with the XHP. You're work is truly admirable.
