I mark the edge with a sharpie, slap on a layer of tape, do 5 or 6 passes on the stone, and look at the edge. If it's removing marker all the way to  the cutting edge you're good. Otherwise, another layer of tape and try again until you find it.
Then it's hone like anything else, pretty much.
Make sure you give the sharpie a minute or so to dry, or it can be wiped off and give you a false reading, IME.
Well the last time out i used two layers of Super 88 tape and the HHT was very good but we all know the shave is the real test, also have a stainless Otto Busch straight that gives me fits, it's the only one that gives me trouble , I have to do about 10 laps on a pasted linen strop for the last step and then the HHT is good to go, not heavy laps and only about 7-10 on .5 CrOx but without those laps the HHT is not that great.

No "sin" in a few passes on Crox. I seldom use it, but if I think a blade needs it, I have no problems using it.

Took another shaver that needed nothing back to the finisher to see if i could tweak just a tad more keeness from the Narutaki Asagi with a very light DN slurry but the pre HHT test and post HHT on this Tanifuji after the session and stropping yielded about the same high 3 to low 4 so will see how she shaves tomorrow, if nothing else "Hone, Shave, Repeat"
