    Hi! Nice video!
    I noticed that you are in Milano, Italy... My brother studied there last year. I noticed the bells in the background sound. You don't happen, by any chance, to live in the Naviglio Grande, Porta Genova or Porta Ticinese areas?... I think I recognized the sound of those bells...
    I just remembered one neat little thing! In Brera there is a Barber shop that has a lot of razors and other stuff on display on the shop window... and in Montenapoleone there is a shop (a cheap one, for sure...) that sells fine cuttlery, including razors. But you probably know all this... sorry to bug you!
    Again... nice video!

    Default 1 honing

    if this is first honing experience i should say great job.Let me point out what i will change


    1 st when you put tape please turn blade other side .leave black tape flat and bring back of the blade toward to tape will be alot easier.
    2 nd know most people jumps from 4 to 8 to 4 again to 8 k side.i don't do that.i am done with 4 k side then 8 and never come back to 4k side.what happenes you haven't done with 4 k and go 8 then come back again etc
    3 please when you go from 1 side to another clean blade with water.
    lastly if you really done with razor don't do thumbnail test you will dull it.
    overall great videa keep it up and thank you for video .
    i hope this information will be helpfull
    i assume your razor was a good conditon before you start to hone

    Great job! So interesting to see others techniques. Looks like a nice clean shave.

    I'm inspired now to post a vid. I'll work on one this week. It'll give Blade Wielder a chance to get me back for calling him a d-bag <g>

    I agree with the other posters, very different technique! But there is no wrong technique, only what works for you. I'm always interested in seeing other shaving forms, I'll try 'em out, but no gaurantee that they'll work for me.... Thanks for sharing!
