    yeah... his talks about stropping and also the amount of time spent on each stone really make a lot of sense to me. Admittedly, i'm not a straight razor guy, so i'm always coming from the perspective of how i can make these things work for me with kitchen knives, so i probably read it a bit differently than most.

    This is very true, I was using local materials(michigan), which may have an entirely different make-up than those listed(I am referring to the trace elements).

    I agree with others that tamahagane is about the process and the tradition. In my opinion there is no reason to copy the composition.
