You know I thought about seeing how far I could push it before I got banned too, shit I never go there and they know who I am and all that, but am I banned? No Gestapo Glen even invited me to join their "razor restores guild" which I could have exploited to make a few pounds, tbh I would rather not bother, I am picky with the people I associate with.

Well, Ralfy, everyone loves you!

Not being smarmy at all, but instead, truly sincere. You are a true gent with the ability to bring a smile to the grumpiest guy's face. You have the gift of being able to make others laugh.

I wouldn't bother. They are apparently very good at manifesting themselves as being bigoted. It's better not to disturb them at that.;)

By the way, Ron may be right. When rubbed hard enough and long enough every Coticule will release an amount of slurry. That's why I do most of my finishing nearby a water tap. But if the premise is that for longer work, the stone will eventually release his own slurry to speed up to process, what on earth could be wrong with giving the process a head start with a slurry stone. But as said, I would never finish with slurry on a Coticule. It seems that Sham discovered that. :) But if you're going to use only water, you'll only have a finisher of course. Which would solve the short-circuit in some guy's brains. If it only wasn't for that annoying Coticule.be an their blasphemous other uses of the stone. :D


Kind regards,
Bart.

And thank the Heavens for that I say! Where reason reigns supreme and all good coticules are appreciated for their wonderfull, wonderfull edges! Even the "other" 3%!

Good on ya Ralfy! It's ethics like those that will take you farther than being a member of a guild.


Guys at the end of the day reading all these threads linked to here has made me even more appreciative of HERE. I may not have been here long, and I may not know any of you from the other forums as I have tended to keep to myself for the most part. However I feel like I could sit down and have a beer with any one of you. This place is much warmer and friendlier than the big places. Perhaps that is do to the size of the forum, but I think it probably has more to do with the people who are attracted to a no nonsense way of dealing with sharpening razors.

My wife said something about the whole anti-coticule group that made me laugh...and then think she might be right. She said that most of those men probably have to claim the necessity of all the hones they are buying or else their wives might be a little upset. Could you imagine a wife logging onto SRP to find a Christmas present for her husband (who just received a 30k shapton in the mail) reading that one stone could do it all, and that the one stone can be purchased for a reasonable price? That was her feminine input on the whole situation. :lol:

Good luck explaining away the inevitable second coticule purchase! :D

That is probably much closer to the truth than you might think. If you have a drawer filled with over 1000$ of sharpening stones, how can someone else claim that he gets pretty much the same results with just one small 40$ rock? We can lie to your wife, but can we also lie to yourselfs? :-/ Hence these guys with their one Coticule, they must be wrong, or have a very low standard, or mislead in some way...

Kind regards,
Bart.

Be careful about how candidly you post on other boards, Bart... The posts that you take so long to craft may just disappear without a trace or a word...

Trust me, I know from experience...

Let's hope not, Paul.

I had to look up "candidly". I all honesty, if someone (and I mean truly anyone) comes up with another valuable approach to get a good edge from a Coticule, other than the three we already host (Unicot, Dilucot and the Progressive method), I will be the first to add it to the Coticule.be sharpening academy. After all, isn't that what this is all about? Offering Coticule users several options to use their hone in a fun and successful way. I honestly don't believe Sham's identical tread starters on SRP and B&B were posted with such an aspiration. I rather think that he same his chance to do further Coticule bashing, because some SRP mods and members might be in a retaliating mood for a couple of things that were posted by myself and others earlier on in this thread.
It almost feels like some kind of war that is fought at different fronts.

I am going to do the smart thing, and close this front now. I think all is said and done.
I thank all who posted in this thread, and call upon your gentlemanliness not to continue this conversation elsewhere on this forum.

Kind regards,
Bart.
