Can-can scratch patterns!
Last night I honed 3
9/16 Erik Anton berg
5/8 Puma No 63 INOX
Red Injun No 101
Just because it's sharp, does not mean it's smooth.
Dorko 15/16. Mejiro Toishi, then Ozuku Mizu Asagi.
That is one thick arse hone Keith.
Correction - they're both 52mm thick
Today's venture - Dexter razor knife of some sort. I use it as a fine utilitiy blade.
Stone is an Okudo Suita. Might be Shiro, might not - whatever, a rose by any other name..... its hard, fast, and the edge is screaming sharp.
The little guys are Okduo Suita Tomo Nagura - each one is a bit different in use.
Boring night at work this is what I got accomplished.
8/8 Dorko. Vintage coticule and yellow green fox extra soft thuringian.
^Wowza! Beautiful Dorko Matt.

Honing, Restoration and more!
A Rolls Razor. Edge was fairly pitted so used Chosera 1k to get past that and then on to lapping film. 12 to 1 micron and finished on 1 micron with paper under it.
Will shave with it in the morning but it should be a nice shave if my other honed Rolls blade is anything to go by.

Touched up a Wacker on a black translucent arky with a .50 diamond slurry then to .25 diamond hanging strop. After that 60/60 linen leather. It is certainly stupid sharp but we'll see if it's comfortable.
Ive been on a roll this weekend at work.
Vintage coticule and y/g thuri.
