Used lapping film for 1st time

Discussion in 'Straight Razors' started by wayne mattison, Friday March 3, 2017.


  1. Billy - Are these sheets a one and done thing, or can they be used multiple times? Do you use them only following stones, or do you use them as a standalone refresh? Thanks.

  2. There is About 3 Strips in Each Sheet..It Can Hone More than a Few Razors..Lapping Film Can Be Used Multiple Times..Oh Yeah..Lapping Film Can be Used as a Full Progression..15, 12, 9, 5, 3, 1 Micron...15 Micron Is Fine for Bevel Setting But it Gets the Most Wear..A Naniwa 1 K Stone is Preferable for Bevel Setting then 12, 9, 5, 3, 1 Micron Finish...You Can Finish on 3 Micron which is 12 K Grit..:)

  3. Thanks! This is all pretty new to me, so I am asking a ton of questions.

  4. Lapping Film is Great for Honing SRs..Its a Similar Edge to Naniwa Super Stones..I Would However Strongly Suggest a Naniwa 1 K Pro Stone for Bevel Setting..Around 90 % of the Learning Curve Learning to Hone SRs is On the 1 K Bevel Hone..:)

    Once the Bevel Work is Done the Progression is More or Less a Formality & Lapping Film Works Well..:D

  5. I just ran one over 1K: 50 sets on a freshly honed (one shave on it) razor. That is the quick ticket right there. Thanks.

  6. Ran a Freshly Honed Razor Over a 1 K for 50 Sets..Mmmm..Not Sure About that One..That's a Quick Ticket to Requiring a Re Hone Job..I Am Assuming You Meant 1 Micron..:D:D
