    I guess that there must be TWO Videos that Glen did on Tape VS No Tape as he CLEARLY showed that it doesn't make any Frigging difference!!!

    Benz, you said; (Your cousin will need to use the EXACT same tape or else have to start over from scratch)?????)

    I suggest that you go back and re-watch Glen's video where he tells that while you can use tape to protect a spine while setting a Hard Bevel, there is NO NEED TO USE TAPE TO REFRESH AN EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oMchDtXzUO4


    The #1 thing about Glen is that he doesn't 'Speculate' he does the research and then puts it to the test and therefore when he posts he has the proof.

    I've used the tape for setting a bevel and no tape to refresh many times and I can say that Glen is telling the truth as It Does Work!

    Hey guys, the whole tape vs no tape mystery has been debunked for a long time now. This thread is for pretty stones, so keep the back and forth/false information about need to use the same exact tape to a thread that is relevant to that matter. See cuda's post to clear up anything you may not understand. Carry on with the gorgeous hones.

    His point is . It doesnt matter. If you are honing for yourself, go wild ride without tape.
    Honing for others. Tape because I aint scratching your spine and replacing your straight.
    Take you car to the dealership, they always put down a Paper floor mat, So you cant blame them for oily car floor. Same Idea.
    If I scratch your bevel I can buff it out an nobodys none the wiser. Grind the heel or set an uneven bevel it shows for days a mile away.
    Lots of guys here can get to scary sharp. Getting there and keeping the razor looking pretty is the unspoken other half of the job.
    Common sense, Aint so common anymore.

    I have recently revisited one of my old WB Near Wedge razors. What I blindly did before was to hone this razor with 2 layers of tape just well because that was I thought would be good. It shaved OK with this treatment and never gave it much thought then one day I took a caliper to it and found that the actual bevel angle was pushing almost 22 degrees. So I did a reset without tape and now even without tape the angle is 19 and change on the upper limit of an optimal edge angle for a razor. So I found that this angle did shave quite a bit better and my WB is not much worse for wear for that matter. Just want to point out that sometimes you have to lose the tape if you keep honing some razors with tape you may not get what your looking for. So i would say tape when you can but don't be bogged down with that idea for every razor check to see if you are getting a good result by doing so. I have been checking more of my vintage razors in this regard and you may be surprised what you find.
    Don't drink and shave!

    Anytime, I may say things in a coarse manner. In Detroit you have to spit it clean and fast or you get shot. My manner. Sometimes we the community forget what its like to be new. This thread that your welcome to, is about Hones, more specifically how we got to the pretty rocks. If you have questions feel free to ask. The search box in the upper right usually sorts it out with a quickness. Otherwise shoot me a PM and I will be glad to break in down like a shot gun. Good luck and welcome.
    Lastly the numbers we list, They are the hones grits and our personal progression to scary sharp. How we built our sharp.

    Cool

    Razorfaust, help me here, how did your bevel angle get smaller by losing the tape?, I would have thought the opposite, but I,m just an old roughneck, drilling holes is not tape related. Tc

    But here we go..... The spine is your guide. The thicker your spine is in relation to the width of your blade the larger the included angle is.

    Adding tape makes your spine thicker.

    Redneck to Roughneck I hope that helps!

    He THOUGHT 2 layers of tape put 22degrees of steel on hone.
    When measured only 19 degrees of steel on hone.
    So removing tape was a side benefit. the true angle was 19 degrees just never measured.
    If you layed a flat piece of steel on a hone 0 degrees
    45 degree angle is a tall ole bevel.
