My first hone
I AM WAITING FOR A COTICULE AND A NANIWA 1K, and then balsa and finally strop---- my question is when one hones should the spine lay on the block too as to keep a perfect angle, i have heard some lay a piece of tape on the spine as to not scratch it up-----------one of the reasons i ask this , is i need to know for sure, it makes sense because the blades "lay" will make a smooth flowing edge rather than a steel eating "V"------------if not wow one must have a steady hand
Also i ask this because some blades, like "smiler's" or just some blades in general, feel like they "teeter" heel to toe, a little because the spine has design variations at different sections for cosmetical looks- maybe i am thinking too hard and the FEEL is what is what i need do---
