thats alot of work after every shave. for a normal razor (not a GD) some stroping is enough.Yes, that's the way I did it. Doing it that way, rather than normal honing, does increase the bevel angle but keeps the spine wear down. The W59 comes with a bevel angle of about 15.5° so there is room to decrease the bevel angle by a degree or two.
After bread-knifing, I taped the spine while removing most of the metal from the edge before bevel-set. Once close to bevel-set, I removed the tape and continued as normal using the burr method.
With the bevel set on 1k, I moved on to 3k and 10k (all synthetic) before 5μm, 3μm and 1μm lapping films. Final finishing was done on a full diamond pasted balsa strop progression.
The blade was put through a full balsa strop progression after each shave until there was no noticeable improvement in the blade's edge. From then on it has been maintained on a 0.1μm hanging balsa strop after each shave, like all my SR's.
