Well I started on this around 9 PM, and I just now got done re honing both of my straight razors. I did my usual routine on both the Norton 4/8K and the Soft Arkansas stone you see below 3 times on each stone and each side of the stone. I have decided exactly which stones I'll be getting when and/or if I get paid again. Those stones will be a 500 grit Shapton Glass and a 15K grit Shapton Professional water stone :
All though I enjoy honing and it's kind of a form of meditation for me, I can't spend this kind of time on just 2 straight razors. It would be one thing if I had about 10 or more straight razors and they all needed a lot of work, but for just 2 straight razors which is unacceptable in my humble opinion. So I will be cutting my honing time in half with those 2 stones I mentioned above.
