    Torrey's are fantastic shavers & although I don't have a jones I'm sure it is as good as many American makers as well.
    Ha..ha....True words are spoken....I know the body slows and the clock doesn't for sure !

    Thank you for all the replays. I find that the Torrey razor isn't as good as the other one, but it does shaves.

    I honed it completely on Naniwas ending on 12k. Perhaps a coticule will leave a smoother edge.

    But thanks again for all the info! Great reading :-)

    That is what I use, Naniwas, and finish on the 12K. I then do some strokes on Crox. Seems to smooth the edge.

    Hope it works for you. Let us know it does or doesn't.

    It seems that Torreys are like most American blades as in more effort is usually needed due to the harder steel.
    Indeed, Torreys are among the toughest, FME. As they get right, they shave with most and hold an edge forever, it seems.

    I own 2 Genco's, an Ontario and a Geneva. Being from NY I love the idea of blades made in my former state. The Genco's shave like a dream, really hold an edge and considering they are almost 100 years old and mass produced, that speaks volumes for good old American know how.
