    I'll make it a lot simpler. Making a good razor is not the same as making a knife. In order to make a razor, you need to know a lot about both steel and the processing of this steel. You need a lot of practice in the manufacture of razors is, as well as a lot of little things to consider, based on the shape and configuration of the future product. The end result should be this-the razor should be comfortable to shave the face right out of the box, the shape of the razor should be convenient for straightening the razor on a leather belt. For all this work, the buyer pays the money and the buyer should be satisfied with the purchase.

    I have honed many Livi razors including his Damascus snake razors including most of his other designs also, I have never been a fan or rated them, in fact, he made a video once naming me and several other people as someone who was critical of his razors, I always laugh when I see him honing a razor, and then comes the hanging hair test that's where I usually lose it completely.

    Oh well. We may as well let it lie. Bashing is not so cool.
    We ARE cool, no?

    Constructive criticism is cool, Bashing is not.

    I hope if I ever get some of mine on the market I get some good feedback positive or negative!

    The bull-bashing banjo of Wall Street led to the Larson comic.

    Seriously. Guy tore a serious gash into this not so thick bronze sculpture in NYC the other day.
