View Full Version : A Norton 4000/8000 for Christmas

I got a 4000/8000 Norton from my son today for Christmas, I guess I will have to start hanging around on this part of the forum. Now since I don't use a Straight I'm trying to figure out if it is something that he wants me to try or just needs he blades honed :001_unsur

Anyway this will be a joy to use, I have honed some blades with stones I have picked up at flea markets and garage sales. It will be nice to have a quality stone, to work out some sort of technique.

Merry Christmas All,

Nice! A great way to break into the honing game.

A gift that will keep on giving! Now you just need about 50 straights to keep it busy...oh wait....that'll come later !!!

He is a good kid I bought him some shaving software, so we are both happy. It is great having a hobby that we both share an interest in.
