Yes ... the loaner was returned with much thanks to @UKRob and I found one for myself. Mine came with a "Plum Bristol" wedge, which honed up. To be frank, I've used it most with a GEM blade and a couple of extra spines underneath the back edge of the blade.So the loaner turned into an owner razor! Excellent!!
So far I've just used a Gem blade with nothing added. Have the original wedge but need to get it honed. I have several other wedges out getting honed so I'll experiment and see what works best.
