    Thank you, Bob. I actually wrote more than 50% of that page, so, yes, the Henckels chart does look vaguely familiar. Here it is again:

    So, Bob, where exactly in this chart would one find an "extra full hollow" grind, I wonder?

    That would be what be what the chart terms "extra hollow". I look at it like it is a full hollow that is extra hollow ground. Mere matter of semantics old boy. I am surprised that only wrote 50% of that page.

    While its impossible to pin "The Best" moniker to one particular brand/model for all users.
    My favorite is a Carl Monkhouse CMON Blackie Ellicottville N.Y. Its ground so thinly when you shave or strop you can hear the blade pop and crinkle and your sure you folding the thing in half every time you use it. Its simply an amazing shaver.

    There are Top Flights that were made in the same Ellicottville factory that I feel are almost as thinly ground, and amazing.

    I too own a blade that sounds identical to what you have described.

    Daniel Peres? Is the tang stamp for those a barrel?

    Have one downstairs, standard 5/8, very nicely hollow ground I might add as well.

    But with razors, for all I know there could be many razors marked, "Peres".....:-)

    Well, hollow grinds tend to be a bit complicated with anything narrower than 6/8ths, but you know that.

    Really? That's intriguing. Have you got any proof for that?

    Just for the record, this is not the most extreme hollow grind I have ever encountered. But the most consistent.

    I believe I have a D Peres kicking around somewhere and iirc it is nicely hollow ground. Hard to believe it could be any more hollow ground than my Ewald Plumacher made Blue Wonder or a couple of other in my rotation.
