My gut feel is telling me that you have not yet experienced a proper SR edge. I'll be interested to hear your experiences with the razors you're having honed by a member here.
Yes, I can hardly wait - I'm very excited to get them, and expect a heavenly choir, accompanied by trumpets, so hopefully it won't be yet another dissapointment.
On a positive note, I received my lapping film and glass plates today, so I can bide my time by experimenting on my $20 Chinese steel. I'm hoping that in addition to the practice that maybe I can achieve something that approaches an actual shaving edge.
