I agree, CJ. I predict this post will have lots of information in it by the time it's said and done.
[Mod note: if you're a steel or ceramic hater, please don't let it show here!]
Monty, your blog post makes a lot of sense, but I'd be leery of using a ceramic hone every time I put a quick edge on a good blade. I know they remove some metal during use, and I'd like to think a steel does more realignment than removal, but maybe I'm kidding myself.
