    To be honest, I wouldn't do much of anything to this razor. I'd just tighten up the pin a little and maybe put some tung oil on the scales. As far as the blade goes, please do not breadknife the blade. I can't see much, if any frowning in the blade from looking at the pictures. If it is just a slight frown, it could come out with just a little acrobatic honing. Breadknifing is only for the most serious of restores.

    I agree with Theseus . The frown is very slight , and if you're happy with the way the razor shaves , why mess with it ? The last thing I would do , is breadknife a blade . A honemiester might be your best option if you want to take the frown out of the blade . The last time I honed a frown out of a blade , it took hours on a 1k hone , but there are honemiesters here that claim they can take a frown out of a blade in minutes . Unfortunetly , I'm not one of them .

    thanks for your inputs. i figured breadknifing would be too extreme. once i invest in a set of hones, i'll try to work on it. but for now it is working out great.
