Tooling Up !

Well I ordered some wheels today a 2 inch contact wheel from Willmont and a 4 inch from the boss.I have restored a few razors and have been shaving with a straight razor exclusively for most of the year.The bug has bit me and I just have to start making my own.I made a few Damascus billits and set them aside just for this and I will probably also be using my two favorite steels O1 and A2 .Any pointers and tip would be welcomed !
Do a flat grind before to begin to work on the hollow grind. It will be easier to make your hollow grind to the highness you want. And it will be easier to center you grind after to have centered it with the flat grind :D

Begin to make shoulderless it's easier. Try to have the thinnest possible edge without burning it :D
