How many laps for my finisher?
I have been honing a few of my razors and so far so good. Now My question is am I doing enough laps on my C12k stone that I got from woodcraft.com. I did lap it and it IS flat. I go from a coticule 25 water strokes as my finish to my C12k and do about 60 laps. Since I am new at this I am not sure if that is enough to get the full effect of the hone or if I need to spend even MORE time on it since I read that it is a slow cutter/polisher. So ..... yeah..... am I doing enough or do I need way more to get the full effect which what I gather is that the higher the grit the smoother it is. Yes?
And in the end itís not the years in your life that count. Itís the life in your years.
