    The Chocera is hard but you gotta be pushing pretty hard or spending a heap of time on the King if it's dishing on one razor

    Normally I would do heavy bevel work with DMT plates but this time I did it all with the king. It just makes a muddy mess.

    I've been using the same King 1k for about 25 years and it does a great job setting bevels with no dishing, undercutting, or other issues. I start with a thin slurry if a lot of metal need to be removed, then clean up on pure water. If you're dishing the stone while setting one bevel, then you must be using too much pressure.

    My King 1k does a great job, too, same as sqzbxr said with a thin slurry for removing a lot, clean up on water. The thing is a workhorse and has required very little maintenance. I like a clay-like feedback a lot.

    It's not the 1 k. It's the brown 800/4000. It does a great job but it is very soft. Like i said, the slurry turns muddy. And after two or three rounds of light work it needs lapping. If I'm really grinding a blade that needs geometry corrections I need to lap every 10 minutes. That's why I picked up the DMT plates.

    Yeah the Kings aren't really designed to do the heavy work that a DMT can do. If you want to begin the polish on a curved single bevel Jp kitchen knife then the King is pretty terrific.
    I used to use an 800 & a 1200 & yeah, one nasty eBay wedge would require the the Kings to be lapped but horses for courses. I like the 320 grit Shapton Pro now for heavy lifting. Bevel setting is not such a drama if the geometry is already there.

    That needs to be underlined.

    But we all know the majority of the time this is not the case with some our "scores "

    Honed up this W&B. Its an ugly little git but shaves like a dream

    I had 3 sessions today , honing 5 blades. I am passionate about honing and hone most days.

    This one was my last quick session . Just a chance to see how vintage Sheffield steel reacts to a Vintage Thuringian , using water only...
    I have to wait a few days for facial hair growth but all the signs are good...

    Sheffield steel and Thuri's were born for each other, meant to be, starcrossed and always betrothed...there is no other edge I'd ever have on my Sheffield razor....period.
