This is the second razor I purchased (both TI’s) since starting with straight razors 5 months ago. The first is a 6/8. Like the 6/8, the 5/8 is very sharp, but the 5/8 is slightly less flexible, which is helpful for me as a beginner. The scales and the engraving are quite nice and the razor has a good feel in my hand. Aesthetics are very personal, but I suspect any user would not be disappointed with the quality of the grind of the blade. I highly recommend Grown Man Shaving for their customer service engagement, product quality and service when questions arise. A note on 5/8 versus 6/8: I noted earlier the feeling that the 5/8 is slightly less flexible, but that does not really impact the shave. What is noticeable is the wider blade does present some challenge on the tighter areas of the face such as the upper lip and chin. If you have an angular face or small areas to shave, the 5/8 is easier. If you are new to this, I suggest going smaller to start.
Awesome razor, shave ready straight out of the box
