Well here goes with a little feedback after two weeks of use honing more than 20 razors including some of my own, my progression involves the Chosera 1K Chosera 5K Snow White 8 K Naniwa Super Stone 12 K, the Snow white as already become my all time favourite, I absolutely love the way this stone performs you certainly have to tweak your technique when you first start using the stone as it's the most incredible fast cutting stone I've used you need very little pressure it puts a beautiful polish on edge and picks up little or no metal even though you see the swarf building up quickly, If I could buy this stone from 1K 3K 8K 12k progression I would pull the trigger in a second, why you don't see this stone used much by Homemiesters baffles me I would give this stone a rating of 10/10.

Very nice, Jamie ... I hope to get into this honing thing soon ... Smile

I'll likely start with more 'mundane' stones though ...

Thanks for the info. Where did you buy this hone? It's interesting that is just comes in the one grade.

I have never heard of this stone! Where did you get it, Jamie!
Do you just finish your razors on the 12K?

Hi Guys, I buy all my stones from this online retailer great customer service most UK forum members use this store, all their Naniwa super stones and Chsera are direct Japanese imports, and the Super stones on bases are all 20mm thick.
