personally i think you might be overkilling it-------you could pull off a sweet blade w 1200,3K, 8K---the 600 is for the full blown restorers on here, i dont think you will ever need it
14000 is nice but balsa CrOx/iron oxide brings a nice edge and is a lot cheaper ---------another finisher a .25 diamond Loaded felt benchstrop lasts for a couple years if not more) and then the iron oxide---------- then strop. for my part the balsa and the leather strop is what pulls off the edge-my 2cents
as for the diamond felt strop i poured the whole bottle on it,-- was i just fine with the balsa? ,Yes, but i wanted to try the loaded felt
my whole system is Chosera 1K, ( only for bevel setting) norton 4K/8K----- balsa (both sides), either or felt w/diamond-and a mean strop i made
killer sharp razors-i am just a casual smoe like you , 8 razors, the Chosera 1K might have been overkill for me but , if i ever chip a blade the Chosera is a fast proven winner-------good luck bro
