    Thanks
    If I may, FME, when going at one heavily, burrs form at the edge. I strop them a lot along the way on a stiff Illinois fabric to knock it off. Sometimes you must breadboard the thing on something, Begin anew. My favorite is a glass bottle. Some use the side of a hone (guilty).
    Killing it and bringing it back, as Glen refers to, makes you positively aware of where you are.
    JMHO

    Otherwise, the thing rears it's head along the way.

    Yes I did kill it and bring it back on the 5k

    Honest it is rather easy I swear

    It has ZERO benefit on any razor that doesn't have an issue

    But if a razor is having an issue with the edge collapsing, which was what I was told and saw along the edge full of "Sparklies" then it is a way of making sure that all the stuff is gone...

    Just finished refreshing this razor. Had it finished on this stone before with a great mix of sharp and smooth. Have tried it on a couple others and decided it needs to be this stone for this razor. Is a La Grise 150 x 40
    My wife calls me......... Can you just use Ed
