Yeah from the first pic I bet I would have missed it, almost looks like a shadow. Glad you got it tuned up.
Thanks for sharing.
Thank you. I always find that the real beauty of a razor (or lack of) shows itself when it meets the hones. And this one really IS a beauty. It gets on fine with the stones, no crumbling or chipping. The bevel was a little on the wide side of my preferences. So at the 8k stage, I added a second layer of tape and cut a micro bevel into it. It really appreciated that little bit of assistance as the edge got noticeably keener. I did a few less passes on my 12K than I normally do and even a few less on the 20K. It was ready when it was ready.
