Hi Twelvefret! It's been awhile. First, I want to thank you for encouraging me to be a straight shaver back in Nov. Now, 85 shavette shaves and 86 straight razor, later, I honed a straight razor for the first time yesterday. I used lapping films and a marble substrate to get the job done. I honed my very first straight razor that I owned, it was my Dovo Special. I used the 1 and .3 films and I got a great edge. The razor seemed to glide on my face. After the first pass, I had a DFS+. I could have stopped there, but I went for pass 2, and really didn't need to touch up, but did anyway. Ended with a great comfortable shave with no wounds. Doing a fool's pass was so easy! I also honed my Dovo Best and hopefully I will get similar results. Thanks for letting me share.
