I ordered a tortoise dovo from SRD on 12/31 and got the free lifetime honing. When the razor arrived I tried the HHT on it. It worked on 1/3 the length of the blade from the heel, and about 1/10th of the blade from the other end of the blade. Most of the blade would not pass the test. I assumed it was sharp because it comes honed by Lynn, right? I have another razor I bought shave ready from Altima55 on ebay and it had absolutely no problems the lenght of the blade. Same hair, same process. I just can't get the new blade to pop hairs.
I was planning on using my dovo to familiarize myself with what a very sharp blade is like. Is there any chance that it just wasn't that sharp when it came to me?
