Meh... That's a lot of hype. Those razors are spectacular razors, but they're just razors... They're steel razors just like every other steel razor out there, and they are honed in exactly the same way as every other razor out there. "found blanks and never to be available again" = every single antique razor I have ever owned... Because none of those companies are in existence today making razors. Ok, some are rarer than others, but no one razor is intrinsically more delicate or "in need of special honing expertise" than any other.

Seeking out Lynn is only because you want his edges because his edges work for you. I would send my blades to Paco, Kentos, TomJr, Hillbilly, Krodor, or O.G. with zero hesitation... They're all awesome honers. (not that others aren't, but these are the guy's who's edges I have sampled, and they're all great).
