    Nanohone impressions

    They aren't available that way for public. You need to ask for some.

    Nanohone impressions

    It's almost impossible to answer this as there was more than one type available, quite different behaviour.

    How Are Commercial Razors Sharpened?

    That's a very good thing. Yeah, but maybe things don't really happen as imagined. With these cutting blades, you deal with stress, fatigued alloy and so on. That's what pushing the sharpening process one way or another and not the lack of something else.

    How Are Commercial Razors Sharpened?

    Very. But as far as knives go, I had countless encounters with huge burrs on mass produced blades, enough to consider that there was no deburr stage whatsoever.

    How Are Commercial Razors Sharpened?

    It is pretty close.

    To Hone Or Not To Hone . . .

    I saw an improvement with stones I clean and wipe as dry as possible after. But won't completely remove the problem.

    To Hone Or Not To Hone . . .

    Kramer developed cracks much slower and to less extent. Kinda confirms the harder nature I noticed, taking less water. It's a very complicated topic. I wonder just how much the water itself (as it's not exactly pure) has an effect.

    Naniwa Chosera 3000 cracking?

    They do exhibit some edge cracking or spider webbing, just not as obvious as Chosera. Makes no difference while using, can't feel a thing with razors.

    Questions about Naniwa superstones after some reading around here

    Yes, it will crack just like the Chosera does. I think, in the right circumstances, any water stone has the potential to crack. I've seen a few Shapton Glass lately doing this, in various countries, with no particular scenario that could have been identified as common, making things harder to...

    To Hone Or Not To Hone . . .

    Yes, both have spider webbing cracks. I just epoxy most stones these days and don't worry about it.

    lets have a new razor thread.

    Gold Dollar, but it's a project razor most of the time, unless someone else did it first. I'd say older not so famous razors or kamisori are still better and affordable. About how the razor sits, if the razor has a decent geometry, you're in business. But often enough, that's not happening. So...

    Natural vs Synthetic Nagura

    It can be done. Many razor guys use the King 8000 nagura for slurry and honing with what that nagura has to provide and get very good results for the given stage. Also, I don't ever remember having any kind of grit from the Naniwa cleaning stone into Chosera 3000. Always clean and smooth. When...

    Natural vs Synthetic Nagura

    With diamond plates, it's a good idea to use them with some harder stones before, like a hard arkansas or some other novaculite. But those particles will eventually go away. With coarser naguras, these would need to be porous enough to give some grit themselves. Mostly doesn't happen. And even...

    Natural vs Synthetic Nagura

    No real risk. Very hard to predict behaviour unless both would be known to us. It might do nothing or something, good or bad, hard to predict what exactly. It would be much easier to try it.

    Natural vs Synthetic Nagura

    Naguras can clean, can make slurry, can change the stones behaviour to some extent (in rare instances quite a lot). As stated already, it's not very easy to just talk about them in general terms as far as possible performance would be concerned. You need very specific combinations. One...
