    Default A new article about honing strokes

    Gentlemen,

    I finished my article about honing strokes.
    Strokes for honing a razor - Straight Razor Place Wiki

    Please check it out. All criticism and suggestions more than welcome.

    Thanks,
    Bart.

    PS. Sorry Robin (Beberlin), but I lost your arrangement of those images in a nice gallery. I was not intentional, but I couldn't add text without loosing the gallery.

    First rate Bart. Love the diagrams.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Not sure if that is what you meant or not

    Thanks Bart!

    Its great!

    "even if the razor rest stable on a hone" Do you mean rests?

    " build-in" perhaps built-in . . .

    I would really emphasize the importance of equal pressure, stroke angle, distance, direction, etc. on each side of the bevel. I still think a lot of people miss the idea that a centimeter or two farther on one bevel edge creates havoc on geomtry.

    You say it, but its hard to over-emphasize these things.

    But you know . . . thats just me.

    Just fix it. The beauty part about the wiki is that anyone can change it, but every change can be reverted at any time

    Thanks Alan, I appreciate the language corrections, and I agree about stressing the need for a symmetrical back and forth stroke on all parameters. I will add a sentence about that.
