    It is an Ozuku kiita I got from Garret. I could not seem to get a good edge on the below razor using slurry.... it was sharp, but not sharp enough for my tastes. 20 laps on a 16K Shapton brought the razor around and I had some great shaves with it. Then, when it needed a touch up, I gave it my usual treatment on my coticule and again, it rewarded me with my customary excellent shave.

    I mulled it over and decided to go back to the Ozuku and this time, I just gave it lots and lots of pure water laps.... and when I was sure it was done, I took a page from Iwasaki's book and did just 6 laps on hard knit wool with Crox and then back to the Ozuku for another 10 very very light laps on pure water.... Yupp... it was smooooooth and oh so sharp.

    So... now I have another finishing hone I want to keep........<sigh>.

    i know.... pictures or it didn't happen... fine. Perhaps someone can help identify the razor... it's an odd razor to me... looks very cheaply made... butterscotch coloured scales, shoulderless, faux frameback grind, feels *cheap* when you shave with it.... stiff blade but rattles like a singing full hollow when shaving. On the tang two partial letters... look like C, G or S and the second letter is either an F or E (bottom parts of both letters ground off when shaping the spine/blade followed by BROTHERS. Second line again is missing the first part, but there is an EY then NY.

    The blade looks nice on the side you see, but there some serious pitting on the backside up near the spine, however, there's 3/8" of good steel between the edge and those deep pits, so I'll be able to use it for shaving for a long time.

    So, on with the crappy phone pictures....

    It looks like a Case Brothers razor to me. I have one somewhere and it's a nice shaver.

    Those Haida Gwaii stones are beautiful sir and the Russian rocket is some awesome steel. Here's a few finished up. Oxidation on blades was removed by greaseless buffing compound using a Baldor buffer..
    One layer of tape used to bevel set on Chosera 1K. Refresh w/ 1 layer of tape on spine after bevel set and proceed through progression..


    Using different grit slurries can provide desirable results. Care must be taken not to contaminate base stone.


    Progressed through a series of Japanese naturals.


    Final finish on one Peters (hatzicho) vintage light green thuringians. Snagged this one off SRP classified section. Pow zoom, MINE.

    I really enjoyed honing this Tahei, 1k Chosera, 5k superstone then full nagura progression on my Kiita.
    It would have been a hell of a lot quicker with full synthetic but it was so much fun playing with the naguras.

    Well I'm getting ready for my movember shave. Honed up my Bruno wootz this evening. Ran into some chipping issues on the 1k, but was able to get that sorted out. The real star tonight is my new Ohira suita. Excellent speed and feedback. Finished on the maruka kiita. This razor is one of the few I've ever had silently and effortlessly tree top arm hair. No pops, no slight tugs, silently slices through, as if going through only air. Name:  1478041259534-1793352058.jpg

    My first hone of last night/day post. PRC 8/8 blued Spanish point was honed backwards from 16k Shapton glass to be softened by my coti! This particular edge was very keen yet buttery smooth at the same time!

    I've had a few more than these 6 in this week but I've only managed to take a photo of these which included a NOS Puma Gold.
