I recently purchased a new Dovo straight razor and wasn't getting a smooth shave with it out of the box so I decided to give honing a try on my own. I purchased a 4000/8000 stone on the recommendation from a co-worker, watched a few tutorials on youtube, and got started. I soaked it for 15 min and started honing on the 4000 grit side. After about 20 strokes on the hone I tested the sharpness and found that I couldn't cut the hairs on my arm like I could before I tried honing it. Is this something beginners usually run into? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
