Making A Straight Razor

Which diameter wheel would you use to grind a straight razor?

There is a bunch of crazy factors that come into a straight razor.
Thickness of the blade
Height of the blade

I made one and had no idea of any of these #'s , I used a 10" wheel , it was a damscus blade and I put a secondary bevel on it. Not supposed to have a secondary bevel on them, woops.
It turned out great and shaved like a Mother.......

Just give it a go and have fun with it.

Maybe Butch will chime in here and give us some Pro insight.
