Robert Larson honing guide
I signed up for Amazon Prime, where you get 2 day free shipping ...
On Tuesday, I ordered a Robert Larson honing guide. It was $11.
It came today. I tried it out tonight.
Between that and the really inexpensive 3M sandpaper from work, and the fact that I am now using my dead flat work surface for the sandpaper, it is foolproof and very quick.
And they come out REALLY sharp .. you know the test ... able to shave the hair off your arm sharp.
I am very happy right now .. life is good!
