Shapton Glass Stone: HR 8000 Grit
- Product Review (submitted on 13 April 2018):
I'm a newcomer to honing so this review may be of interest to others who are considering making the change.
Went to the Melbourne store and spoke to Audric who was most helpful.
Between some advice from him and YouTube I though I'd give it a go.
The process of wetting the stone and honing your razor is actually quite simple and even therapeutic, like polishing shoes.
I picked up an old razor for peanuts to practice on but after hardly any time at all moved up to a new Dovo.
Ended up with the Shapton 4000, 8000 and Holder.
I have all but eliminated disposable razors from my life.
Totally worthwhile exercise, I recommend it.
