Impression

First, many thanks to my pal who I affectionately now call 'The Whetter'. He honed up a couple of hollow ground blades that came with my Wilkinson Sword Pall Mall set and he's done a great job! Blimey! They're sharp!

First pass was brutal - practically baby smooth in one pass over a couple of days' growth. I realised I'd forgotten to set the blade aggression and had it on full volume. I dropped it down for a second pass across the grain and came up smiling. Lovely job.

Yes, it was strong, yes it was a little rough. Stropped after use, I think the second shave will be nicer.

Thank you, mate. Much enjoyed. You've brought my pride and joy into normal and proper use.
