I decided to hone my Dovo Bismark with my newly purchased coti.It was not really dull but I just wanted the coti edge on it.After I thought I was done I stropped on linen 100x and leather 100x.I put the straight to my arm,expecting the hair to just jump off my arm and the exact opposite happened,it would barely cut hair.
Here is what I did.
1.Wet coti and rubbed the small stone on top of it.
2.ran the razor across a glass to dull the edge.
3.30 x strokes with slight pressure and the slurry did darken.
4. About 200 half x strokes using no pressure and added water as needed
5.About 200 x stroke on only water.
Also do I need to just start over?
