This razor left the workshop in a 'shave ready' condition, it should not need honed for at least 9 months if stropped properly. We recommend you watch some YouTube tutorial videos before your strop this razor.
To prevent corrosion, after use, you must dry the razor thoroughly and store in a dry environment. The razor will benefit from a light application of razor oil if it's going to be stored for more than a few days between use.
I remember having my neck shaved with a cut throat razor many years ago & thinking this really is the ultimate in shaving & i suppose it is. To fully appreciate a razor of this calibre you need a steady hand & good eyesight, then & only then can you get what this razor can give you. If you are unsure stick with a safety razor, these razors can be lethal in the wrong hands, in the right hands though the rewards can be spectacular. An awesome bit of kit......
