    Feon 1880
    I'm still using the pyramid method on the Naniwa 8K and 12K followed by 20K, chromium oxide and cubic boron nitride for touchup that Mike reminded me of (the pyramid part). I used the Feon a few shaves back and it was a little rough. It is amazing how improved the edge and thus the shave is after this touchup.

    I really like it. Nice and nimble. Easy to hold. Not as bulky as my 208. It has a really nice edge on it as well.

    I really like the scales on that razor. What kind of wood are they made from and what finish is on them? Do you need to do any maintenance to it on occasion?
