It was a little thin on one side towards the toe of the blade. It seems that pushing the blade away from me, helps me keep the pressure more even on the blade. So instead of pulling and pushing the blade on the stone. I am pushing the blade away from me, then flipping the blade over and push it away from me an equal number of times. The most important thing is, it works (for me)! I managed to create an even bevel from heel to toe on both sides of the blade, without having to over think it. It is definitely much slower, but I am okay with that. After the bevel was don, I went to the Translucent Ark. I am waiting on my Hard Ark to arrive; as I plan for it to be t next stone after my Soft Ark. So I am spending some extra time on the Translucent Ark. My resulting shave was AWESOME. 2 passes with BBS results. My last few shaves have been with a couple of different soaps and I can say; I was very happy to use a WWSC soap tonight. The post shave feel of WWSC has me spoiled. Have a great night all.
