    Looks decent, but has a bunch of honewear. I have always hated his presentation pics, the angles are weird and can hide some blade problems, such as heavier honewear .
    Profile pics of the blade will eliminate the need of half the pics and give better idea of the blade condition.

    If you can hone you should be able to.

    Check out Lynn's video on honing:



    That razor still has plenty of life left in it and should give you many years of shaving.

    Although not allowed to value a razor, that is some fine steel.

    A bit of hone wear but I would not have shied away from it.

    You will have a fine shaver when it is honed, that first shave will be the testament,

    if you are happy with the shave is the price too high for a lifetime of service.

    Very true if I can use this razor for many years to come and enjoy it , then 45 bucks will be a steal, I'll give every one an update once I get this bad boy and get it shave ready
