What did you hone today?

Discussion in 'Hones/Honing' started by ouch, Jan 31, 2011.

    Gerber paring knife on a coarse Japanese natural and a garage sale stone I suspect is an Arkansas.

  1. In honed a 5/8 Salamander on the Coticule so I can experience a Coticule edge.

    Got a 6/8 Geneva ready on the Thuringian for tomorrow.
  2. My Higo is going to be featuerd in a Japanese TV show, so I figured I'd dress up the edge a bit.

    What is this beautiful stone?
    Tell us about the straight razor please! In what context will it be on tv?

    And now some contrast to Gammas beautiful stone and straight razor above,
    progression on LF and end with "ugly".

    It is a Higonokami knife, not a razor - it's sort of a general purpose pocket knife.

    The program is about products from the Kansai region that are liked/loved/used by non-Japanese people around the globe.
  5. @Gamma, if it will be in English and if you have a link please share.

    Want to find out what this stone is so treated it as a finisher after LF to 0.3m.
    Not shaved yet.

    Finally got this little guy honed up and ready to shave.
  7. C.V. Heljestrand MK 4 Just received this blade Today .I was surprised by what nice shape she was in .I think she may even be NOS . .When I checked the factory bevel out it was perfect .Small and even .I just gave her a quick refresh on my J-Nat .50 Laps to remove oxidation and impart a J-Nat feel to the edge .Shave was wonderful .Edge felt smooth as silk and cut like a Samurai sword .
  8. Quite elegant looking razor.
    Is the hone an Llyn Idwal?

    Heljestrand No.4 is one of my favorite razor, for me it has no weakness.

  10. Got the 11/16 Theo Koch ready for Sunday on the coticule.
  11. Really liked shaving with this narrow near wedge, Söderen, nakayama nagura on Aiwidani.

  12. I love how my two Söderen Straight save .I love the quality of their Steel and the attention to detail in manufacture. Söderen razors are almost impossible to find in the US.

    For me...


    I don't get using tape, but it's up to the razor's owner.
