I thought I'd give straight razor shaving another go after a disastrous attempt a few months back with an bargain basement razor. Anyway, I bought this from a well known internet auction site for $25. It says it is from Solingen, Germany and is Made by F Herder A Sn. (Google says they made Bayonets during WW2). It has a mother of pearl and brass insert into the handle too.
I intend to clean it up and hone it before putting it anywhere near my face, but I wanted to know:
Have I paid too much?
Any other usefull info you can give me with regards to honing it ect?
Many Thanks in advance!!
