Thanks for sharing your thoughts Keith.
Gamma, thank you again for this.
Curious, no mention of the Zulu Grey...for some reason I thought you'd been using that over the past year, with positive results? Maybe I'm mistaken...
I have been playing with the ZG as well...YW - I sold my ZG - it was a plausible finisher but it didn't wow me. There were several stones that I tried in the last year, but they didn't get mentioned - the ZG was one, the Dalmore Blue was another, along with the Pyrannese, the green Beryl, and a wealth of barber's hones.
Wow - more basement digging. lol.
Sometimes, I feel like it might be time to write out an updated version...
Has Joe Talmadge ever written about sharpening razors, or only about knives?What I found most useful was the theory behind your approach to honing. The closest thing I've found to it was back when I first read Joe Talmadge's writing on Sharpening. Both works offer solid reasoning and theory that can be applied to an individual's personal methods and style of honing.
