    Bevel setting on the NOS Manufrance 7/8 and reset of the bevels on the Otto Bush 164 6/8 and the Le Grelot 71 6/8.
    Hones used: Naniwa's Specialty Stones, 1000, 2000, 5000, 8000, 12000 and finished with 100 x on the Charnley Forest with Herbertz Honing Oil. Test shave afterwards with the Otto Bush; great shave. It was the first honing session where I used a loup (60x), and I really liked to have a clear view on the honing progression.

    I'll tell you guys one thing. A king 1k will take a long time to set a factory bevel on a Gold Dollar. Quite literally a few hours.

    Aside from that once the bevel had been set I jointed it and reset the bevel on a coticule. Well 3 different coticules later with no success I busted out my little performer .. first run through dilucot was successful.


    Isn't it funny how you can have these 8x2-3" stones and you end up playing with a size 5 bout...

    It's got the nickname lightning because of the lightning strikes going through it. It's also fast as lightning.

    Thought I would share.

    "X" marks the spot for this Russian Spartan razor. A most totally excellent razor steel which can be had fairly cheap too.



    Final finish on big Oozuku water down slurry.

    Bonus pics! When first found in the wild, not Ar-kansas novaculite stone had unusual hone wear...
    pre lapped.


    that could be attributed to...

    I've really been looking forward to posting a pic of this since I got it a couple of weeks ago off another member here. It's a 2x4 Genuine Belgian Razor Hone Barbers Special. A few days ago I gave my Union Cutlery Co a quick touch up followed by a good stropping on this Cordovan by Neil. Todays shave was simply gorgeous. The thing I love about this hobby is it gives us lots of things to learn, lots of things to collect, lots of things to do, and no matter how good a shave you've had in the past, nothing is better than a good shave in the present.

    Today I wasn't messing around. Gold Dollar #2 / 4

    Took the bevel grind to the 8x3 Eze Lap 600/1200 15 minutes max.

    Set the bevel on coticule and did a unicot after a failed dilution sequence.

    Test tonight.
