    I was wondering what the stones were too, the third is definatly a coticle, the first looks like a Norton combo or similar lower grit combo. Whats the second and last one?

    Jees, first time I saw these vids on the tube I though he was some backwards italian fellow who didn't know a bit about razors... Guess I was a tad off...

    He could do with a smaller hammer though, no use to wear yourself out with a 3 pound sledge when half that and more heat would do a better job...

    it's kinda surprising how hard he slaps the razor down on the stones and strops.

    guess it works for him, though.

    I'd still love to know what stones he is using in these videos.

    Make it MAESTRO, please!

    I think I can see a Naniwa combination hone in his early progression. 800/5000
    then a Naniwa 2000
    and a Coticule.
    Last one is a translucent Arkansas

    Obviously the way he hones and strops works. I think the way most of us have been taught is just another way which is a lot harder to stuff up. If you watch is stropping carefully you will see that he doesn't roll the edge. Of course if I tried that I'm sure I would ruin the edge in no time.
