Jared,

I scanned through your original post too hastily. You are correct of course. After all the work you'd done, this condition coulnd't possibly be limited to only the thinnest part of the outer edge. Sorry for mentioning it.

A good read about hardening, tempering and the general aspects of knife making:

Then the light shone, trumpets sounded and I got to the other side, where men shave with smiles on their faces, razors pop hairs, and a continuous choir singing «~~Keen and Smooth~~» is heard everywhere. (Matt)

Sorry, I hope I didn't sound too cocky.

But anyway, "losing temper" sounds cool too. It's like you've pissed the steel off.

No need to apologize. It's good to know that sometimes they're savable. It's just a shame that the razor was ruined.

I don't have much experience with buffers. I'm rather afraid of them actually. Besides, I once badly mangled a razor on a rotary tool when I started out a couple years ago. Since then it's been hand tools or nothing for me.

May I suggest Viagra? Just rub it across the steel and it wil be as hard as ever.
And when heated it will be even harder.

I know as I tried it on an old pice of steel.

One problem might be the shaves the next day and after - the steel and the face might continue to need/demand it.
