Bart, I took the liberty of mentioning this thread in a new thread on B&B (someone had to, right?). I hope you don't mind the publicity. :O

No problem, my friend. If you prefer to upload the document to Badger&Blade, that's fine to.

Kind regards,
Bart.
Then the light shone, trumpets sounded and I got to the other side, where men shave with smiles on their faces, razors pop hairs, and a continuous choir singing «~~Keen and Smooth~~» is heard everywhere. (Matt)

Absolutely top-notch study guys!

I believe this report deserves a place in the information mine.

Thank you Bart, and all for putting the time into creating such a valuable resource!

None of the BBW samples have the pink dots, that some of them display.

I will take both stones with me tomorrow and place them on the flatbed scanner at work. That will provide us with details surface pictures.




Thanks, Bart. I am of the impression that micro-detailing of the correspondence of characteristics to qualities can be a rabbit hole, but I would like to see them anyway...:) Who doesn't like pictures?

Very interesting :thumbup:

I have read it a bit diagonaly before taking the train but is there also an interest of "stropping" strokes in the finishing stage with coticule?

Thanks to all our researchers.

BTW: I'm very happy to have a La Veinette:)

I've been reading here for months but this is my first post. I want to say that this report exemplifies why I find this site a must read. The qualities I admire in this site and the participants are clear thinking, precision of thought and writing, and a willingness to ask questions that set aside conventional wisdom and strongly held beliefs in favor of rational and systematic experiments.

Thanks to all who participated in the study, this is very useful.

I've been playing with a natural combo using the yellow side for the bevel work and the first stages of a dilucot, going to the blue side to finish a slurry dilution series and finishing on a coticule on water. Now I will have to try the blue side with a stopping stoke to finish. More to play with.....

Me, for example. Just writing a post when we speak. Since I don't have any "reputation" on there, nor stellar post count, I don't really give a damn.

Hi Matt,

You can save yourself the trouble. It has been posted in a thread on BBW, with fast accompanied, typical responses.

Mmm... Link? I was thinking of a new proper thread with it - Paul I see you were already announcing it, so I don't want to give the impression of 'flooding' another forum with it...

cheers,
Matt

Social websites have an agenda, there is no use pretending they do not. This site, despite its ramblings, frivolous fun, and other silly pastimes, is basically about applied science. While I do not share it, I can empathise with the childlike enthusiasm some members display for, well, pieces of Belgian rock.

There are hardly any vendors here, and it shows. Discussion is mostly driven by curiosity and the desire to learn. Public displays of hoarding disorders are few and far between, and that also reflects the maturity of the average forum member.

Incidentally, and with reference to the thread on SRP, there is little disrespect shown towards other members or forums, yours truly being a sad exception.

Now, as for this SRP thread, I found it most useful. Ever being the avid learner, I learned today that "no disrepect for X but" actually means "I am a spineless liar with a hidden sales agenda, and do not mind slandering people as long as I and the other vendorators can make a nice profit from commercial honing and selling hones".

This thread, and its protagonists, are a disgrace to the shaving scene. You guys should stop posting in there. Nothing good will come out of it.

Robin

And, I am afraid, Robin is correct on all counts.
