In fact I was kindly disappointed in it to be honest and it took him forever to get it honed and back to me. So my new source for honing is going to hook me up for a small fee and I'm buying a new strop of him as well. In the future, I plan on buying more razors from him and having him re hone my straights when they need it. I also need to pick up a jeweler's loop which will be a huge help in determining when a re honing is needed. So I'm currently working on my straight razor shaving gear as we speak.
