This razor was fully restored to near perfection by Max Sprecher. It is quite probable that at some point in this razor's life the tip has been reground. The blade has a satin finish. The edge has a "smile" as shown in the photos. The Faux Horn acrylic scales were shaped and sized individually by Max for this razor. We have had the razor professionally honed. So, it is completely shave ready.
