Not that bad a crack I have one with a horizontal crack, not as big as that one. I figure Ill never make it to the crack while honing. It may work out. Ok Im being overly positive about the outcome. The kami idea is the best by cutting it out. Who's going to try it?
EXPECT success in every shave and the universe will certainly make way for that success.
I thought it sounded like he meant to cut off the entire blade, and keep only the tang?
Is that a razor in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
Actually, I have a razor with a trashed blade that I picked up *only* for the tang stamping... I think a keychain is in my future :)
I have a Torrey I got in a junk shop for $10. I didn't notice the crack going in from the toe horizontally for about 3/8 inches. The blade is extra hollow and thus thin, but I honed it anyhow with a Rolls razor hone, stropped on CrOx, blue jeans and horsebutt strop and it is a great shaver. The squeak coming from the crack is a bit unnerving while shaving, but it hasn't chipped yet. I wouldn't pay $45 or $29 for a cracked blade with no scales or with scales.
Screw you Nike.. we have Sheffield. 1886.

It's true... I hung out with the bearded lady... than shaved her as she slept.
The circus has never been the same since.
Has anyone ever used low-temp hi-silver solder to fill...? Pondering it, for $10...
Next time I ruin a GD, I think I will put it on the bay.
Banned for Life from "Over There"... TWICE!
One of a kind sectional razor.
If you aren't grateful for what you've got, nothing that may be coming down the pike will likely do the trick for you.
