    Thanks Aaron. Its kinda like that. When i get the time i close the door to my room and dig in. Not sure how many hours i spent that day but a few were eBay buys and needed a start from scratch. A fun time for sure.

    Yes a bevel setter is quite nice. (green brick) but for those starting out with learning to hone there's nothing wrong with say a 'King 1K' they aren't very expensive and do a good job.

    I've also had a King 800, 1K and a 1200K and all have worked well. I've given all of them away to guys here that wanted to learn to hone. My Naniwa 1K does cut faster but if I were to drop it and have it shatter and didn't have the funds to replace it, I'd buy another King water stone--

    You could build a nice hardwood display and have it under glass------

    The bevel at the heel is very small, probably due to the tapered grind at the spine, (red circle) and someone has been riding on the tang when trying to hone the heel, (blue arrow). Both of which will keep the heel and half of the edge off the stone.

    Check the other side if the same pattern exists, then it is the spine keeping the heel off the stone. If you have a wide bevel at the heel on the back side, the razor is warped and a heel forward rolling X is needed to hone the heel, possibly with a bit of pressure.

    If it is the spine, reshaping the heel, (green circle) so that the straight part of the edge ends where the spine taper begins will allow the heel to easily be honed.

    Heel issues are a common problem, that are easily remedied, with just a few strokes on a diamond plate. I correct probably half of the razors I get in for honing, most are just a small amount of maintenance reshaping but do make honing easier and I believe look better.

    Will send you some pics when I'm back in town. Been using 2 layers of laptop when I hone it. Didnt shave test it yet got lazy, heel does pop hairs decently but just not like the rest of the blade.

    Starting to learn honing using Japanese naturals and doing so in style. Refreshing my Manaslu 300 and welcoming its Diamond Hayashi cousin, Mr. 8000, using a komo / tomo (DN) finish. Those pewter-purple scales are stunning, but the blades are practically identical apart from different levels of sex appeal.

    Both edges performed closely to my SG20k reference (as well as my memory of the 300 when it arrived w/ a nakayama asagi finish) but not quite there. Need to focus on the final finish diluting the tomo slurry to clear water. Learning is half the run, er fun!
