So I finally got around to picking up a Rolls Razor today....nice little thing.

Didn't notice the nick in the blade and the cleverly cracked hone until I got home.

I was just about to give up on it as a lost cause when I noticed that the blade of the razor had spine wear like my straights...I can work with this! I brought out the hones and did a full progression and got the small nick out of the blade and brought the blade back to where I would call it shave ready on a straight. zip zip zip on the strop part of the Rolls box and off I went to shave. Now it's been quite a number of years since I shaved with anything resembling a stick connected to it but you know, it was a pretty good shave! It will certainly be a pleasant distraction for me while I restore the Goldedge I bought today as well
