    8/10k can do it if it doesn't need much work.

    Factory edge shave ready concerns me... What kind of razor is it?

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

    Ouch. I'm sorry to inform you that you bought crap. There's a reason those are on the SRP "brands to avoid" list.

    This Razor is on my personal "would like to try honing it" list... I am pretty convinced of the dubious quality, but if you end up keeping it, I wouldn't mind taking a shot at the edge myself... No cost to you of course, other then the shipping to me ...
