    this thread makes me happy....

    i dunno why...
    a nice walk in the woods helps me relax and relieves tension....

    the fact i'm dragging a shovel and a body should be irrelevant...

    Sure...

    Spine leading = stropping
    Spine trailing = honing

    Therefore, the blade contact with my face is the final step in honing

    Send me $20 and I'll deputize you!

    "Deputy Chief Execitive Honemeister", has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

    For $30 you can get "Attaché honemeister General", and you get a special badge to wear at meet-and-greet events.

    $50 gets you a diploma, signed by me with a fancy gold seal "Honer Magna Cum Laude Illigitimi Non Carborundum" in swirly calligraphy (frame sold separately).

    One time, an upstart from Idaho tried to lay claim to the title of best honemeister.


    I quickly dispatched the would be usurper of my throne.

    Is Lynn Abrams still the best Honemeister and does he still provide a honing service ?

    Think if those 117 posts as one giant collective answer. Sometimes an answer is a multidimensional cloud and not merely a binary bit.
