    A new catch from the 'bay. Never really expect them to be 'shave ready'. That said, two hours later it is shave ready. I set the new bevel with a Shapton 1K. Set the edge with a Shapton 4k followed by a Shapton 8k. Finished this edge with a coticule and a .005 diamond pasted paddle strop. After a nice smooth shave today, it is not only shave ready, but its time to go in the drawer with the other nineteen blades. I think I need to stop before I hit twenty! Nice Japanese blade i'm thinking 1960's vintage. This is today's Shave of the Day.
