So I am new to honing and wanted to seek some advice. The lowest grit I've purchased so far is a 3k naniwa. My thought process in using that as a starting point was that I'd only be honing razor in relatively good shape without chips or major damage. I'm a few razors into learning to hone and have been relatively pleased with the comfort of results, but there's definitely room to improve the sharpness.
My question is whether or not my baseline start in the progression should be a 1k or is this more likely a byproduct of my inexperience?
