    I'm cheaper than Ambion and certainly less habit forming.
    Sleep well, Tim.

    I have watched the realrazors videos but had no idea it was Utopian. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Man, the sound of that razor going over the first stone he uses is HARRRRSH! My G-d, I hope he never uses that stone again on that razor. I'm going to YouTube to go leave this idiot a message!

    Well, I'm the "idiot" that made the video. I don't recall what hone I started with but I can guarantee that I used the right hone according to what the edge needed. If I see chips that extend half way into the bevel, then there is no point, in my "idiot" opinion, in starting with a 1k hone when I need to remove a lot of steel. Odds are good that I started with a Chosera 600 hone. I would have followed that with an 800 and then a 1k.

    What is your objection with this approach?

    You are not the guy in the horrible honing/stropping video. That guy thought he knew what he was doing. None of us here would subscribe to "sharpening" a razor like this. I read farther back, before this page. This was a joke video to get people to troll?
    You made the first post, with the video you found of some guy who thinks he knows how to hone and strop a razor. That is the "idiot" I was referring to, the guy in the video.
