    I tried to hone earlier but couldn't get the feel for it. When the girlfriend went to bed I saw the perfect opportunity to go find a tranquil place and just be one with the blade. A terribly uneven hone worn Joseph Allen and Sons easily tamed by my mighty 00 Frictionite and Les Latenuses. My perfect little hones. All under 4 inches long. Name:  image.jpg

    Cool HOTD

    Went through a few different steels today, there was a W&B hollow grind I did on a Coti that I am looking forward to the test shave

    This Portland Hydra was the fun one,, O1 steel tempered to 62 RHC

    It was sent in after being on a Norton 4k where the edge was falling apart..

    The rather large bevel IMO was formed using 2 layers of tape, it was a nice even bevel so I went with it, but I am not a fan of thick bevels on new razors ..

    Chosera 1-5-10 the steel took on a near mirror polish, I did kill the edge a couple of times on the 1k and once on the 5k to make sure any burring was gone.. I shifted to the Zulu Grey with a light slurry for the finish, gently diluted out to clear water after about 40 laps...

    The edge evened out and took a sweet haze finish

    That's a nice looking razor!
    When you say you killed it on the 5k Glen, did you bring it back on the 5 as well, or drop back to the 1k again? I haven't redulled mid honing to date. What's the benefit, if you don't mind me asking?
    Thanks
