I have read Joels comparison for different ways to finish off a razor. I have a light beard and would like to purchase a stone that I can use to keep my edge sharp. I know a lot of people like the norton 4k/8k; I think I am more interested in something like the spyderco UF (no lapping!)I do NOT plan to restore any old razors with damage or nicks, I only plan to use this on a razor that is in good condition. I would like to just get one stone as I do not like to have lots of extra "stuff" (weird, I know).
If I just got a spyerco UF, how often is it recommended to hone with it to maintain a shave ready edge without ever having to go back to set the bevel? Does anyone personally do this with their razors? Thanks
