    Default a Razor with Issues

    I bought a razor from Tilly at Red Traders knowing full well from her description that the razor had some problems, but I thought it would work well as something on which to hone my sharpening skills.

    This razor has significantly more hone wear on one side than on the other - I'm guessing in an attempt to remove a warp. As I play with this razor, should I attempt to even out the wear by taking material off the side which has less wear, or should I just begin trying to hone it ignoring the unequal wear and treat as just another "normal" razor?

    Ignore it. All that matters is a sharp edge. Just hone it as you would hone any razor.
