My mistake, the 8x2 coticule will be around the same, the 6x2 would be cheaper than the two diamond "stones".
I'm favoring the coticule, and I don't mind the learning curve, so long as I have a shave ready razor. I don't like DE razors...
Anyway, better for taking a razor from abused to shave ready.
If I get the 8k diamond hone, will I need a more coarse stone to set the bevel, etc, or can I use the 8k? If I use the 8k, will it wear it faster?
Is the 8k diamond going to produce as smooth an edge as a coticule?
Thanks for the fast response.
