Re: Honing Stones for Blades

Try shaping an Xacto blade so that the cutting bevel is on one side only, with the second side being flat.
In woodworking, hand plane irons, chisels and marking knives are shaped this way and most Japanese kitchen knife gurus argue that the sharpest cuts come from such a single cutting bevel shape.
The cleaner edge of the severed wood will be the one against the flat side of the blade and if you are registering the blade against a rule, the flat side of the blade should be against the rule for the greatest precision of the cut.
