    Default Just a re-grind

    Recently restored my first razor, W&B celebrated fine India steel. Just got it honed up tonight for the first time (600 lansky, ~1000 Arkansas, Norton 4/8k). Stropped pasted then leather. Very pleased with the edge. However. The bevel is larger than I'd like, and uneven, even after doing a rolling x stroke.

    Here's my question:

    Am I crazy for wanting to do a regrind on the blade for aesthetic reasons? How much should it cost to have someone JUST re-grind, and any ideas on who could do it? Thanks!

    Pictures would help, but you can always tape the spine to reduce the bevel size. If it were me, I would put a couple layers of tape and hone it, use it, use it, use it, then hone again with a couple layers and before you know it, it's done.
