    In kilometers, yes. In gridlock travel time, not really
    Same for Belgium really.

    Yep, Nijmegen that would be me.
    My learning was done the hard way: buy a Norton 4000/8000 and a small coticule and a DMT 325 for lapping.
    It cost some but this is what here is considered a standard set up, at least that's what I got from Lynn's DVD.
    Then start honing and, with a little sense of what you're doing, you will get results.
    Somewhat messing it up the first time is what I did of course too.

    When desparate for success you can allways send you rasor to Lynn or Maximilian or some of the other vendor/honemeisters here through SRP. It will set you back a few dollars plus shipping but then you get a killer edge and can compare for future hone sessions of your own.

    Sorry, I would't want to hone for others; I am not that confident to not mess up someone elses blade.

    I'm still here. I just don't post much anymore. He's more than welcome to come by sometime. As long as the razor isn't too dull I'd gladly help him out....just realised that I also have diamond stones nowadays to set the bevel....so even if it's too dull I'd still be able to help out.
