Was looking on coticule.be and read about Bart's tests on the BBW as a post bevel setting hone.
Anyone here use a BBW as a hone? I've been checking them out and I can get a 20cm x 5 cm for 40 something Euros - it's a snip compared with my identically sized coti, plus it seems that I'd be able to get away with dodgy dillution if I do a dilucot style hone.
Thanks for your comments and experiences. Even if you are all negative I'll probably drop 32 Euros on a 15 * 5 BBW and see for myself, then I'll have to find somewhere to store my new Welsh slates that I'll be getting on Sunday.
