Good morning all,

Anyone using pasted balsa to finish honing? I have given it a try on my last few razors and have been very impressed with the sharpness and smoothness of the edge. I keep tape on the razor and finish with 30 laps, then add a layer of tape and do 5 more laps. The edges have been outstanding thus far.

I do a slight convex on a hard, pasted leather strop. Love it. Sounds familiar! Smile

what is a good source for a balsa block? I use a pasted paddle strop, but have been curious about picking up a balsa board for the same purpose. is there a recommendation on size for this purpose—if it is just any old balsa that one needs, I could probably go to a hobby store if I knew what size worked best.
