    Took a chance on a couple small Okudo stones, thinking they could be a hone or a nagura… so time to play.

    This one was sold as an Okudo Tenjo Suita, and I loved the pattern. Started the JNat journey with a handheld CKTG Ozuku Koppa that I sold to a friend to start his journey, and I missed this smaller option.

    1 3/4” by 3 3/4” is about as small as I have gone… reminding me of my Coticules. Started the bevel set with the Suehiro 1k and then ran through the Shapton 4k then 8k before jumping to this one.

    1 razor 1 shave does not tell a full story but the Pritzlaff Hardware had a very nice face feel. Time to get more edges!
    Happy honing.

    Edges #3&4 off the Okudo above…
    Tornblom and the new to me Tony Milton Kamisori
    Tornblom was/is a slight mess so took a bit on the Suehiro 1k, and then both enjoyed their time on the Shapton 4k then 8k before finishing on the pictured Okudo.

    The second of the two small stones was this Okudo Tomae. Seems a tad softer but I enjoyed the feel. Same progression leading up to it as the other stone, but the King William era W&B required quite a few layers of tape. :)

    The Shapleigh Hardware was an absolute pleasure to sharpen.

    On that Wade & Butcher, I'm thinking a seriously Concave Hone would be the way they honed it, in the old days.
    I had one similar to that, and I couldn't get an edge on it, even with a boatload of tape.

    I got ambitious this week and restored and honed 5 recent antique store finds. The crack on the scale of the McPherson Brothers is stable...no movement. All honed on my Naniwa stones.

    Russian blade. Touched up the edge a bit. More like a do over. Set the edge on 1k Diamond then flipped to my Welsh stones. Got a real nice edge on it.
