I was wondering what kind of initial evaluations many experienced honers make on a recently purchased blade whether its new or vintage. Things like spine thickness heal to toe, blade wobble, initial sharpie tests, & so on. And how do these first observations influence your honing approach? For example ,"should I use a wide flat hone or a narrow hone"? Are there certain indicators that a blade might have a tendency to prematurely developed frowns or any other honing concern?
