    My breadknifing happened while making a stroke on a stone and halfway through I basically made a divot with the edge which in turn brought the spine up to a 90 degree angle.. Not sure if doing this is called breadknifing? But it sure f#@ked my edge up! ..

    Regardless of how it does in sharpness tests it is the way it actually shaves that counts.

    The shave test is the only for sure test, Steve. If it works for you, I'd all that matters. Unless your reaching for something better. When I started shaving n honing, all I had was one stone, fine enough for straights. But not fine enough, its only around 1 or 2000 grt., , but that's what I shaved off of for many years, till I learned about other hones specifically for straights.

    I just heard the term and wondered what it meant (education).

    I found the answer using the Forum Search and entering "bread knifing".

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Steve just did the pyramid on his practice smiler.

    Every stroke was a swoop and the razor can pop his arm hair and cut into a tomato with just the weight of the razor.

    He is just about to have a shower and a shave with the aforementioned smiler.

    I am very proud of him and although most of you could do better, I think he should be pleased with himself.



    Steve

    PS. if he wants a bread knife he can get one from the kitchen.

    O-M-G I just shaved with my practice smiler.

    I had a fantastic smooth shave, razor was sharp as - well sharp

    I had my first real bbs shave today.

    I wish I could say it was my blade but I know it's my technique that's improving.

    I have even figured out how to do my neck smooth.

    I can feel a new Youtube video coming on, I hope I'll impress but I am always grateful for advice.

    Can't type any more because I need both hands to feel my face.
