Nicely put down in writing Dick!
I'm not done with my Rolls either, it's just on hold. Honing it is no big deal, it's only time and patience with a stone that's part of the kit. I think the answer is in the stropping. I bought a mess of cruddy RRs that had OK strop panels. My plan is to get the strops replaced with new leather and use diamond dust to get the final edge. If successful I'll post what I did/how I did it. I just want to get it to shave facial hair. It shaves my arm no problem (and probably legs), but I don't want to show folks my hairless arms, and I have interest in shaving my legs. :-))
But I'm like a bulldog when I get my teeth into something, or so I was told by my coworkers before I retired. I just don't let go until I get it done.

birdlives: They probably did that because they had a ninja shaver armed with an unmentionable contracted from B&B to make the shave....get your attorney to get full disclosure and video of the shave. If you were touched by a unmentionable, 'sic Fuzzy on them!!

RocketMan: My wife is a nurse at a local hospital and brought me home a razor they use for such fun - it is an UM style (unmentionable!) made of plastic and dull as a a Derby blade run over some sandpaper - maybe one of those was used???????
