    First touch up on a new Orihi Kamisori on a lovely Nakayama Iromono.
    It shaved nicely on the first shave, but felt the toe was a little less than the rest of the edge. So I made it all the same along the whole edge. First Kamisori too so I am going really easy and light while I figure it out. I did like 10:2 on the stone.

    Couldn't sleep so I honed up this CMon at 0300. Dilucot on what I believe to be an LPB followed by light slurry and then just water on what I believe to be a black Thuri. The shave was a splendid one.

    Note: The stone is actually darker than it appears here. I adjusted the contrast just a little to accentuate the mottling that really pops out when the stone is wet which is hard to capture well with my camera phone.

    From this mornings efforts..

    This is the Merx & Co. razor that was off gassing. Blade was cleaned and i had an old set of scales that fit nicely.

    Set the bevel on a #1 Washita (bottom).

    Middle stone is a Dans Soft/Hard combo (soft side up).

    I finished on my newly acquired Charnley Forest. Thanks Solitary Soldier!! Great stone.

    I love the hazy bevel you get from the chert.. So different then the polished edge of a 12k.

    Just had a session...
    W&B frameback . Done on the Nakayama. Full progression with my new Mejiro and Koma . The Mejiro is super soft and the Koma cuts super fast..

    The other two are a W&B and a Dovo SS frozen ice thingy? razor to be technical .

    Did them both on the Chosera 1/5/10k then the Shapton 16k and finished on the blue green Escher ..

    The Jnat W&B is the best shaver I've owned and is primed ..
    The Esher finish W&B is for my next shave , part of my on going tests..
    Unfortunately the Dovo SS was a fail , I will re visit it tomorrow . A case of needs more work ... I much prefer to work with one razor from start to finish alone

    Just refreshed two razors, shave test of the RigaRazor, For Barber's Use bit later this afternoon.

    Light slurry with the Y/G side of the slurry stone until clear, then onto the Livi Loom strop...
