Well put Bart.
The first razor (prototype) I made has bevel issues in terms of prettiness.
It's a crude thing indeed and was a file originaly no heat treatment involved.
It's hard as hell and hardly ever needs honing, holds an edge really well. It remains to this day one of my best shavers.

This is a current Zwilling Henckels Friodur. I bought it three years ago in Athens directly from the official representative.
After honing i noticed that the blade is a bit twisted (no warped).Seems well where the heel is lifted from the glass even the spine is well tangent. If you turn the blade on the other side, opposite occurs , the heel is well tangent but the toe is lifted.
Here i kept(but hardly) the edge equal ,i consider is more easy than a warped blade.
You can see also a crack across the back pin. That happened later due to over tightening.
But......... i cant to condemn a manufacture like Henckels for a razor with some small physically defectives.
Is known ( after statistical investigation) the Mondays and Saturdays production gives lower quality derivatives
Finally I can say that this razor is an excellent shaver and her edge lasts long if you touch the honing limits.
Best regards
Emmanuel

In that case, you'll have to buy at a seller with a "no questions asked" policy for offering replacements. They might exist, but I suspect even they will expect you to ask replacement before you started altering the factory bevel. It's not that difficult to estimate how much a blade deviates from perfect straightness, immediately upon its arrival.


Bart, don't know if you remember the pictures of my Revisor 8/8" that was warped, I was lucky, they took it back and it got sold again to someone else who maybe had no problem with that, for me personally it was to much money for a razor that was not to my expectations.

Yes, I do remember. I think that almost any decent online seller will offer you an exchange, when you return an item, but only if you return it fairly quickly after purchase, and if you can return it in the same condition as you received it.

Kind regards,
Bart.

Today, I received notice that the Dovo with it's bad disposition is on its way to me. (thanks Wim)
I plan to document how I will try to sharpen it.
