Nevermore Will Dcaddo Be.
Without a label it’s not an Escher, but it’s definitely a Thuri and looks like a really nice one. Nice score.
It was from a chap in Germany he is a big Collector of Escher, coticule etc he has some nice natural hones .Pretty. congrats. eBay?
I've had good luck doing 20 strokes, then hand stopping, and repeat until the stone is completely dry.Well I have tried my Escher after the 10 k naniwa this time with water and the results were smoother . Maybe I am expecting to much , having used a 20 k suehiro for some time
Nothing but consistent smooth results.
Could the phrase "over honing" be tied to sticking or suction? I never could get my head around what was meant be it. I just know that I try to avoid sticking or suction, not at all sure what most guys do.Exactly.
"Overhoning" is either "Bad stone" that you actually DON'T WANT to finish on, so when you do the results are bad and you call it overhoned or "Bad honing" where you damage the blade by being sloppy when honing and blame the stone.
Whenever someone would describe a stone as "You need to be careful not to overhone on it", that always made me nod and go "mmhmm, so it's a bad hone, got it."
