Comparative and Superlative

Just saw this word being used like it's a superlative.

As described by the Merriam Webster dictionary (online)

Honest hon·est \ˈä-nəst\

: good and truthful : not lying, stealing, or cheating

If it was a superlative ( due to presence of the 'est' suffix ), then a median truthful person will be called "honer" (comparative)?

And the adjective without comparatives or superlatives is .....
"hone" or "hon"?

Just another day pondering over senseless thoughts.
