    This is making me want to make up my own stroke. I've got a name, I just need to work out the stroke: The Humpty Hump

    Well, I'm trying to coin a new honing phrase at the moment but it's not related to a stroke type.

    You know when new people start out, how some of them are really good honers in their forum posts but in reality aren't that great at honing?

    I'm calling that the Volkswagen. As in, "Jimbo just did a Volkwagen in the hone of the day thread".

    I know what a swish is...an old term I think. I know what Nikes are. Is a NS the same thing as a heel forward half circle?
    Oh it is nothing new hehehe

    It has had many names over the years but the same old stroke, just gets a new name each time somebody new discovers it and has never looked here

    Been sitting there for 6 plus years and long before that when I described it on the forum..

    Swooping X stroke or what ever you want to call it is quite useful on many razors especially if they have "Issues"

    The ones with over-honed tow for example.
