A honemeister is a person who is highly skilled at honing. Honemeister is a title bestowed on a honer by others as an expression of recognition for that person's skill and experience. See Lynn's thoughts on honemeisters here: What makes someone a Honemeister?

Honester, by contrast, is a term invented around mid 2009 as a self-expression by newbies who are learning to hone. They needed a title in order to justify charging for honing as much as a honemeister does, but without having anything resembling the experience and skills of a honemeister.
