    My plan is to get with Glen and make plans to send it out to put one of his edges on it.

    If you have to pull and tug it is not sharp at all. Take it to a professional and have it honed. I have yet to purchase a straight that is "shave ready". The biggest thing that you should be worried about is nicking yourself. The razor should glide. You should not have to "force" it. If you purchased the razor new, a lot of times they will hone it for nothing.
