I totally agree with you. They do shave a whole lot better after some geometry correction and some honing gymnastics but they still have a pedestrian "meh" quality about them. I wonder if it is to do with the manufacturing process:
The way the razors are punched into shape out of the blank. (If I understand the video grind is effectively hammered into place, not ground). I realise that this is just an industrial implementation of smithing, but all the same, an artisinal approach forges the blank and then grinds the grind in. That surely keeps the temper along the face better?
