    ajkenne,
    I saw that razor before and have to say that it is absolutely stunning and the most detailed straight razor that I can ever remember seeing.
    Congratulations on being the owner of that fine piece.
    Because of the spine configuration, I have to ask, how does it strop and how does it handle on the hones?

    Pete, the one I own is a classic design Sheffield (the first link) and does well on the hones and is easy to strop like any larger 8/8. He uses great steel and my razor holds an amazing edge. The pictured one in the video may be another issue and I wonder how it could be stropped or honed as well? Not sure who was able to snag that one? He sells a few to SRP members on eBay but has lots of followers in Europe based on his Facebook. I posted his Facebook link on my original post. Shows photos of some of his best work over the past few years. May get another Herr razor at some point as I believe he is one of the best custom Bladesmiths out there today.
