    Thanks, Shaun. As far as my heals go, I think most all wedges in general. I use a sweeping/rolling X. And I've recently been paying more time on the heals. Its got to be something I'm just doing wrong somehow but I'm not seeing it in my stokes. I don't have any smiling blades like some of our master razor makers make.

    It may fall back to the simple rule that the bevel is not set until the apex is complete heel to toe and some areas just take a little more time.
    It's not what you know, it's who you take fishing!

    Jerry, a wedge will not flex like a hollow ground, so you have to adjust the stroke. Check for warp and or twist. Looks like wear on the spine at the toe on this side.

    I got a few to do tonight but i think i might start with another wedge and consintrate more than normal on the heal. Its got to be something symple im missing. But they seem to undercut water well and pass all my bevel set tests. As they as, keep on keeping on and i will soon find what is making it happen. Maybe not enough beer.

    Try ink, heel forward stroke and 2 layers of tape to raise the angle.

    Yep. That's how I always start them. Until bevel set. Then drop a layer of tape if it keeps the angle somewhere in the proper amount. I will also kill the edge lightly and set bevel a couple of times to be sure its right before moving on. So I think its something I'm doing along the way to the finisher. Its got to be. Maybe its in my stropping?
    I just don't feel like honing tonight.

    Got up this morning and lapped my main stones. One less thing that can cause issues. I will be sitting down today for some honing. Got to do something to pass the time until i can go to work tomorrow.

    Try using 2 layers of tape all the way through, and make sure you are not burning through your tape. One more layer will not change the angle that much but might be enough to get the edge fully on the stone through the whole progression, if the bevel has a slight warp or twist.

    And use ink, it will tell you a lot about what is going on at the edge.

    I use Kapton over electrical and change the Kapton for the final laps. A hot tip if using Kapton, it is very thin and sticky, pick up a tape desk tape dispenser, it makes it sooooo much easier to measure out and cut the tape.

    Being obliged to stay at home has its advantages.

    This one is done :-) :-) :-)
