    Just a little hint

    Heat Damage from "Moron Buffing" is usually in one spot, you rarely find it along the whole edge

    It is also normally at either the Heel or the Toe, Heat damage will basically give a "Soft Spot" that spot will fall apart at the 1k level just crumbles away and creates a burr or a fold over


    Just for info

    ps: The "Shinier" the steel is the more likely you have "Moron Buffing" present

    Thanks for your input. It's probable I have been heavy handed while honing/ stropping. I realize there is a difference between calculated bevel angle and actual angle so I will do as suggested with double tape and light passes and see how it shaves.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I carefully reset the bevel with the 10K stone I have and just gave it several strokes on strop to remove any fins. Shaved with it this morning, 3 days growth, and got a passable shave with 2 passes and blade behaved for the entire process. Thanks again for all your suggestions.
