Refreshed some steel for the month on one of my favorite stones, a butterscotch Ark I rescued years ago from the flea market. A Globusman, IXL Wosty and a W&B Masonic in Ivory

Just the one in for honing today including a scales refit, it came with a very drab and boring standard pair of white Henckel's scales, I think it looks very smart in its new outfit dressed in Rams horn.

William,

I haven't honed the razor yet, tomorrow the razor looks very nice out of the box, I'm only going to take the razor back to the 8K starting with a single layer of tape, I'll then have a look at the edge fingers crossed then on to the 12K finally finished on the 20K, I'll be in contact.

One of mine on the hones today my Iwasaki, I noticed a little fall off in sharpness during the last shave with this razor, just of lately with my own razors I've taken to bypassing the linen component after using the 20K and going 50 suede 50 cordovan shell seems to offer me a slightly smoother sharper edge.

It's a fine razor, Western-style Iwasaki it was also a NOS razor when I received it from an old Barber supplies in Japan, 64 Rockwell on the Rockwell scale.
