I'm sure you have seen my problems lapping my Arkansas stone. I've almost given up on it and I'm trying to set the bevel on 2 razors. One is an unknown 1/4 hollow with no markings or tang stamp. The other is a French faux frameback. So far I have tried 2 seperate days to set a good bevel and I have failed both times. The unknown razor will pop hair but I feel like the edge doesn't look as good at the tip and heel and the french razor will only pop hair for the 2/3s at the tip. The edge has a bit of a smile and with the spine on the hone the last 1/2 inch of blade at the heel doesn't touch the hone. I use a single layer of tape on the spine and I'm using a King 1k/6k. If I can get my Arkie lapped I'll try using that to finish it past 6k. I know its not ideal but its what I have. Any tips to help with consistency at the tips and getting that heel end of the french razor? I'll take pictures of the razors after I find my phone. Its the only thing I have with a decent camera.
