Which honing method for new fili?

    Looking forward to my new fili arriving next week. Very first fili for me.

    What honing mehod to use? So fun to anticipate and think about this.

    Synth 4/8 then on a nani12, or

    Jarrod's new convex Ark, a bevel setter glued to a hard translucent finisher, or

    Film, followed by diamond pasted balsa, .5u, .25u, .1u, or

    Mail to Doc226 for a jnat finish. Jnat is the one method I don't have.

    It's a used 14, probably from the fifties.

  1. Then you probably owe yourself a Jnat experience. Filis like them.

    Didn’t hear coticule on your list either. A well done one is sublime, if just a touch boring in its ease
  2. Without a doubt, send it to Alfredo for Jnat edge.
  3. As most of you know, my method is The Method - film followed by balsa. Works beautifully every time.

  5. Put your own edge on it!
  6. Plus one for sending it to doc226
  7. Oh, yeah, I do have a coticule too.
  8. Looks like the votes are going for Alfredo.

    I'll enjoy it myself a bit first, just so I can see the difference when it comes back from Alfredo.
