    Have had two, 6/8 and 7/8. Very good factory edge, but I can't leave well enogh alone oftentimes and honed both with synthetics (naniwa SS up to 12K)--no microchipping, awesome smooth edge.

    I must say that their entry to the market was rather underwhelming. From the early problems (confirmed by at least 6 highly experienced users that I know of) they just weren't ready to make a consistent quality razor, but after some on the job training looks like they have got the hang of it.
    I had one of their later production, but it just wasn't my thing. I have plenty of vintage sheffield wedges that shave at least as good and have far more appealing design to me. But, everybody has a different taste and it seems that many people like the Hart razors.

    I enjoy my 7/8 great razor purchased two years back my only gripe is that it dose not hold an edge as well as some of my other razors but still takes a great edge.

    I have a 6/8 and 7/8, both with square point. They arrived as shave ready as it gets, held their edge, and were easy to hone when the time arrived. A very solid, but utilitarian, product. Had a problem with the scales on my first one and they stood behind their product. Looking for a third if I can find a nice upgraded one.
