    Cool Hone of the Day

    Rainy Cold Drizzle, Flat Tractor Tire

    HOTD:

    Nice Fire going in the Wood stove, honing buddies laying on the couch next to me

    And a few beauts to get sharp and smooth

    Man I know I going to have to change that tractor tire later but for now I am staying warm dry and rubbing steel on stones

    Today my vintage Les lat coticule came in unexpectedly. I lapped it and polished it. Took a razor that was shaving well and did water only strokes until the feedback told me to stop. Smooooooth. Can't wait for the shave later!

    Another good thread topic, Your buddies have the right idea Glen. Here's a couple finished over the weekend, not the whole progression. And guys wonder why it costs more to hone a wedge or wakamisori..
    Mike

    Final finish Ralf Aust (one layer Scotch super 33+) on light green Thuringian I got from Peter.

    Final finish wakamisori on Hoffritz stone w/ oil.
