I'm officially about the join the ranks of honers. After nearly a year of straight razor shaving I've decided to take the plunge. Unfortunately my bank account doesn't agree, so I had to settle for a small, 1-stone solution. Hence a coticule. Starting tomorrow I'm going to begin learning how to use it, and post about my experiences here on B&B. I'm quite looking forward to the experience, and fully expect it to take quite a while. Fortunately I possess an abundance of patience, a character trait honed on the personalities of three young children. Wish me luck!
