Staring to begin noticing that my Koraat razor is becoming less sharp since the two weeks that I've got it now. Am doubting If I'm going to let it hone by a professional honer or stropping with green paste.

The book in the picture is a German Easter classic, "Die Häschenschule", originally published in 1924. It describes a bunny's typical school day, which includes lessons on which plants are edible, how to paint Easter eggs, and what to do when you see a fox. There's an English version ("A Day at Bunny School") available, which I don't own, so here's my attempt to get the meaning of the above verses across:

Look into their eyes so bright
when they paint the eggs just right!
Every bunny's in a rush
to get their hands upon a brush,
and tint the eggs in every dye,
some green as kale, some blue as sky.
Among the Easter Bunnies shan't
be anyone who tries, but can't.

My poor Rockwell 6C hasn't had a look in since I got the Timeless. Have I found a new favourite, or am I just enjoying my new toy? , I ask myself . .
