Some of you know I am an accomplished honer having shaved with my edges. I am very familiar with my coticules and have a pretty sound method for them.
This weekend I dulled my Boker Edelweiss on glass and started honing. I went to check armhair test (i usually check both sides of the blade) first side shaved great, but when I tried the other side......what's this...not shaving hair, not even exfoliating the skin. I figured I would go ahead and finish out to see the result.
When I got to the water stage x strokes, I really got concerned. One side was undercutting like a champ almost instantly when I hit the water, but the other side.....nothing. Not even penetration at the very edge. I cannot seem to get this razor evened out. Even after taking it to a DMT to recut the steel. It is a current production Edelweiss and does not appear to be warped, or have any other significant problems.
Any of you guys have an idea what I have done and how I can correct it? I have already talked with some others about it, but just want to get some more input.
Just because it's sharp, does not mean it's smooth.
