    I bet. I would have to make sure I'm relaxed, not stressed about anything & take my sweet time!

    I really recommend drilling them off by hand that way after setting yourself a small guide divot. You have control in all planes then and can go slowly. I actually just put that blade to an aggressive coticule before I sand it a touch just to see how off the grind is since it has a tiny heel droop. It's not as whacked as I thought it would be. Rolling x is hitting everything well. It needs an exaggerated roll at the toe. Name:  20160619_024852.jpg

    It's puzzling to me as it is a near wedge yet the front looks like it should be giving off wide bevel and spine when they are narrow in actuality. It's almost as if it was even more wedged out at some point and it was very slightly tweaked in its life to make the honing easier. It must have been like a kamisori with an excessively worn omote side at one point. Interesting.

    I followed the instructions from some instrument maker page regarding ivory. Spent 24hrs clamped. They are way better than they were.Name:  20160619_215729.jpg

    Ivory does get moisturized quick quickly with light mineral oil.

    The ivory should not be oiled! It becomes translucent. It is not horn!None conservator or antiquarian puts oil on the ivory.Please do not ruin what has survived so many years!
