Not one to leave well enough alone (and still stinging from forgetting about ink) I returned to several razors today, one of which has been problematic. Where yesterdays inkless rolling-x failed, todays plus-ink instantly showed visually where to correct and quickly produced (shocking) a good bevel. This improved technique along with getting my dilucot thing worked out made for a rapid jump-shift in razor sharpness, smoothness and uniformity.

As always, thanks for the patience getting me rerouted; it's nice to finally have this method producing like it should. This is a real morale booster in what has otherwise been a remarkably tough year for figuring out things that used to be obvious.
