I have few straight razors wich really need to be honed. I dont have any kind of hone set and i was looking over the internet for advices.
Would this be the optimal setup for honing:
1.Norton "Waterstone" 4000/8000 3"
2.Thiers-Issard 4 Sided Paddle Strop with these pastes on the sides (Diamond Sharpening Paste, .25 micron,.50 micron,1.0 micron and 9.0 micron)
After these, do you need any kind of leather strop for honing? I mean the hones like this: http://www.classicshaving.com/catalo...944/817068.htm
As i allready would have thiers with good micron pastes, is there any need for two sided leather hone anymore?
