    Thinking of upgrading cnat to shapton ceramic 12k

    Right now I use films to 8k and finish on cnat. So looking for finisher. I only have 2 straights to maintain so just need to refresh edges on occasion. I've been using films for a while and am looking to transition to stones as budget allows.

    Thinking of upgrading cnat to shapton ceramic 12k

    hi all. I currently use lapping films for honing up to 8 k. I then finish on a chat. My question is I'm looking for a budget upgrade. Is the Sharpton ceramic 12k a good upgrade, or am I better off saving up for a better finisher. I'm new to stones so the cnat Is my first.

    Where to get an SR honed, and how much to expect to pay?

    I just got mine back from doc226. Awesome work. About 20 bucks plus shipping. I am learning the honing process and wanted to get one done professionally to compare my work. Highly recommend him.

    Straight Razors and why?

    I love the all aspects of straight shaving, from trying to maintain blade to shaving. I shave every other day and dont rush it. I put on some good music and it makes the shave nice and relaxing.

    Should i change scales or keep original

    Rescaling complete. I just have to hammer it a bit more to try centering. It goes off a little to one side when closing. Not too shabby for a first attempt. Unfortunately I was not able to save the original scales.

    Should i change scales or keep original

    Last week I got a j r torrey razor with barbers notch. I'm now debating on if I'm going to keep the original scales on it, or change to a spare set of rosewood scales I have. The scales I have now are a hard rubber. From what I understand they are ebonite. So original or not is the question. Any...
