Ok so I am trying to get my ebay Kami back into shaving form and here is the result. . My kami seems to have built a backwards L shine to it. Now take a look at my 6000 grit stone
As you can see the ends got some attention but the middle is no where to be found! Now I don't have a perfect shave ready blade. But it does remove some hair on the ends but not in the middle. I'm applying light pressure to keep the whole blade on it. I'm afraid of this turning into a smiling kami ( not the good kind). I am replicating Carter cutlery's system of honing -->http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTV4ph1LE3c . My guess is to place a finger in the middle and spend more time setting the bevel. Yes I know I can send it out to a pro but its $11 from abroad just to send it out ( almost as much as each hone!!), but I know I can get this since I already got some hairs off my body ( I have a patch of missing hair on my left thigh!). I'm waiting on a coticule coming from another member, but for now I want to stay with this setup and just get some advice or tips from anyone here. I'll worry about the finish and comfort level later. I have Larry's Whipped dog poor mans set, in addition to a King 1000, 6000 grit stones.
