    I am not sure one is better then the next.
    For refreshing a shaver I grab a 13K hone and give it
    about twenty seconds of back&forth strokes each side
    then about 40 normal honing strokes.

    Strop and shave.

    My oldest 13K Naniwa was the first hone that gave me a sharp as a feather edge
    (but smoother).

    I can no longer remember the English for this maker. It might have been an experimental test
    batch but the price was a good one seven years ago or so.

    My current habit is to almost never flatten my 13K but once or twice a year and just
    use it. Remember, I am a shaver not a honemaster.

    If I get a bad shave it is likely my lathering that is lacking.
    Easy to test with a good fresh DE blade.
    It looks like a Sigma Power 13k. How are using the stone with water? Splash and go or briefly soaked? Standing water on the surface or just a dampened surface when honing?

    Put a blistering, Washita edge, on a pocket knife for one of the guys at work. He also works with the local fire Dept., so I figure it better have a good, strong edge. Someones life, might be saved because if it.

    A bit of free time, so I get to give three of my own a little refresh.

    Two nice Herder razors in this morning, the one with the cracked ice scales had a tiny dink mid blade, easily sorted back out on Monday.

    Haven't honed this one since outback restored and honed it for me. Been maintaining it with crox. As a result had to bring this one back to the 1k to get the bevel flat again. Brought it up to Naniwa 8k and then to the thuringian I was lapping a few weeks back.

    Just honed this W&B I restored .

    Gave it a tidy wedge and some custom scales. It was a long project.

    Did all the correcting on the 1k, set the bevel and the 5k, then gave it a full Nagura on the Nakayama.

    The HHT results were a welcome relief
