    Default Time to do a little touching up

    Last night I took sometime to my self before the holiday madness and touched up my straights. I've been using Alex's system of honing and it seems to put a little extra buttery touch on my edges. Happy Holidays Gents

    Alex's system? Nice collection, you obviously prefer the big blades.
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

    Rolling X can be a very effective way of honing or refreshing, but normally is not needed when a razor will lay flat on a stone. When they don't, it is a good alternative.

    Have fun.

    Yes very true. Most of my razors have a smile to em so that rolling X does seem to work great. One thing I did notice that I haven't really seen is doing 5 to 10 strokes on one side of the razor than flipping it over to the other side and doing the same, following up with your traditional back and fourth laps.
