    Is this technique described in a post anywhere?

    Very nice work! Blade looks really good! Looks to me that you used a spacer instead of a wedge, that would certainly make the scales opening bigger.

    I don't know if it is, a video search for him with his company name and honing brought up nothing online.
    It involves focusing your honing on the outer half inch of a stone, starting with the heel at the edge and drawing the razor off as you move it the length of the hone, a sort of x stroke. The idea is you don't try to work the whole blade at once, only that half inch at the outer edge so the shape, be it smiling, straight or even bent, is irrelevant as you can always manage the angle and pressure at the narrow part your focusing on without having to balance the rest of the edge. The whole blade touches the hone, you still maintain normal honing form but place pressure, light or heavy, at that outer edge.
    That's the best I can describe it.

    While it is almost double the width it has some angle to it, where the original had almost none.
