My first effort at touch up honing. I used my Whippeddog barber's hone. I rinsed the hone to remove residual grit. I lathered it up with shaving soap. I did 10 - 15 passes, X pattern, edge first, with my razor flat on the stone with moderate pressure. Finished with Cr02 stropping and leather strop. The honing worked well, my first post honing shave was yesterday. It was a nice smooth shave. Any suggestions for improvement? Should I tape my spine? Thanks, all.
