    I just gave an hour and a half to the science of honing

    Took my custom Hart which had a great edge and killed it . Nothing is more important than me progressing in the art of honing.
    I was trying an experiment with a Tomo but to get there I had to go through a full progression of Naguras.

    At the end I noticed 1k scratches in the middle of the blade.
    Time to lap my stone, that took a good 20 mins with the Shapton plate and I've yet to try and smooth it out .

    I am happy to have a fresh surface on the plus side.

    Hopefully I can find time during the week to re-enact my Tomo experiment

    Cheers

    I used the yellow-green side of this "natural combo" thuringian to finish a newly restored James Barlow. This is the first yellow-green thuri I've ever owned or used. I got it a few weeks ago and have really enjoyed using it... it give a wonderful edge! Also, I've been holding onto a couple small chunks of yellow-green for a couple years hoping one day I could use them as slurry stones if I ever found a yellow-green thuringian hone, so that worked out pretty ok.

    Touched up a few blades on two different Eschers yesterday.

    The Engels Trademark and the Beau Brummel 35 went into the y/g Barbers Gem

    The Hans, Engels Special, and Bartmann 100 went on a Barbers Delight sized light green Escher. I’m going to do a bit of comparing to see how the edges differ.

    A couple of sweet Herder 25's tonite.

    Headed to the old blue-green rock in solitude.
    With a new layer of tape, of course!

    Love them Herders....

    Nothing really different today: Vintage Revisor 8/8 with gunstock scales on Naniwa Chosera 1, 2, 5 and 10k followed by yellow/green Thuringian for the finish, happy shaving!

    Tested out what I thought would be a knife/mid razor 38mm thick kuro renge suita on a red imp 132 wedge. Turns out to be a very nice creamy finisher. Excellent shave and so smooth. Leaves that I can't stop touching my face feeling
