    Well, I got this offering to prepare it for a new member of our french forum, who had this beauty offered by a (surely good good) friend of him.

    Lucky boy !

    The United States Post Office is off the hook. They did not missplace my hone.

    The box was never mailed!

    So, Best Sharpening Stone is Express Mailing it and I should receive the hone Monday or Tuesday. They are also refunding my shipping charges. Pretty decent of them.

    You would think for a $130 USD hone FedEx or UPS would have been a more secure shipper.

    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.

    Yes, it is interesting, I don't mind barber's notched razors, can live with them, but pretty much try to avoid round tipped blades completely, yet for some reason the spike points really work for me, like the way they shave and handle, and they just look great to me. Also, I pretty much prefer 7/8 now and above, but I have some 4/8, 5/8, and 6/8 and they're all great blades.

    But yea, I really go for the spike points, it's really hard to find the types of blades I like with that kind of tip...but the searching is fun! And it's all great I guess, until I decide what next to explore.

    Cheers!

    Nice. There are a couple of Gencos at one if the antique stores I shop at but they have broken blades. Doesn't it suck when you think you found something good and you open it up to find a HUGE chunk of blade missing?

    Goes like this: find a razor or box in a locked case (they always are, okay i get that) so you find a clerk to unlock the case and hand you the "razor" which you open and find a shattered, broken, rusted away, etc. basically nothing but scales--which would be fine if they were nice scales, but they never are. Been through that exact scenario at least 30 times.
