Excellent CjH! So glad to hear you're using your newly acquired bunch of straights and props to you for jumping in and honing them yourself. I have been using straights for about a year but also did my first hone this week after replying to your post. Very satisfying, although I also picked up a couple of cuts which might not have happened with my other straights.

Razor Gold Dollar 208
This GD 208...no other words but wow! The edge is very smooth and comfortable after a quick strop on the 0.1um and kanayama leather. 3passes without any red spots nor irritation for mixed bbs/dfs/ccs finish. Razor is good but my skills are yet to be...the journey, however, is very enjoyable! 20220506_110302.jpg
