    Today's hone of the day is a pretty common one for me. Same old keen kutter with brutal spine wear. I used the coticule geezer sent me a while back. I'm learning it slowly. Not a fast coticule, but she sure is reliable. Set the bevel on some milky slurry. Diluted until I felt it was right and then added a layer of tape. The HHT off the stone was good.

    A catch and pop but when I stropped the HHT didn't get that much better. Usually I'll go back and do some more water only but I didn't feel like it. It felt nice and grabby on the TPT and the strop. I test shaved tonight and was rewarded with a truly special coticule edge. Soft and after the shave it felt like I hadn't shaved at all. I'm glad I stopped where I did.

    I learned a lot today..

    Ps. I raise my slurry with a DMT with no issues

    On Sunday it seems one hone for the day is not enough. So I tried two. ����
    A 'common' Belgian for the wosty and an Escher for the Anchor. Interesting how both can give a 'wow' edge during the shave. A two pass but one side of the face each, and the only difference I can tell is one side smells like a coti.

    Edit: why SRP are the pics always upside down. ����

    Nice, Frank. TBH, I think you must rotate them from your end before attaching them.
    Smartphone pics come out sideways a lot.
    Upside down? Rotate once again!

    Working on some Russian Stain less steel. Slow and effective for moving to final finisher stone in progression.... have fun.

    Default 4 Natural Beauties

    These are the four beautiful woman keeping me up late at night trying to figure them out. My obsession is starting to take a toll on other area of my life. Bags under my eyes and exhausted all the time but I am loving every minute of it. I stayed up late honing four razors with these. 3 from eBay and full bevel sets.

    From left to right:

    A "no name" stone stamped Washita. It replaced my labeled "Lily White" Washita as the no name is a serious metal hog compared to the lily white. Very fast.

    A Soft Arkansas

    A Hard Arkansas

    A vintage Translucent Arkansas

    Using magnification and every test I have calibrated to get a consistent system down. like I said, loving every minute of it.

    Glen,

    Did you ever had a label on the Blackie? Is it a Faso labeled? Just curious

    No Sir it is NOT a Faso I messed with one of those at a Yakima meet, they are a much "Harder" feeling hone then mine

    I wasnt sure how to start. I had been shaving factory edge for a year. Bevel set Chosera 1K, 5K
    and then went to Nakayama Mizu Asagi Tomae. and then just boton slurry to dilution and got to scary sharp. Different than any other hones I have used.
    Next day I killed another edge and tried it from boton,Tenjyou hard to get a slurry from that one, and lastly used mejiro.
    Yes I had to refer to his notes to get all the terms correct. But I am learning.

    So with this set up, bevel set to finish I didnt see striations. Is this normal for jnats?
    It is sharper and I have been able to get with my Zulu or PHIG, keener may be a better term.
    Jnats sent me hone crack with this set up and now I cant stop the madness.
    Common sense, Aint so common anymore.
