MY Dovo "Bismark" has not been honed since I purchased it about 8 months now . I get very good shaves from it and i was wondering what will happen when i do eventually hone it . I use a stropping paste and "strop" it on the leather side before each shave . I have used it about 80 times and it is still sharp ......... it will still pass the" hanging hair test" . I do strop mid shave sometimes .

The Sharpness of a Razor is a Judgment of Taste I Reckon...I Personally Like a Very Sharp Razor Coming off a High Grit Natural Finisher...You Can Maintain a Razor for a Long Time with Paste & Stropping with Good Technique...A Naniwa 12 K Super Stone Would be a an Excellent Choice to Refresh Your Bismark when Needed...:cool:

That's the type of stone I am planing on getting !!!!!!!!!
