I just purchased a new Dovo "Gentleman" from Shavenation and I'm at a bit of an impass. I've been honing for over an hour on my 8000 grit norton stone(Which I know is a very fine grit and possibly can't be used for this purpose) and my question is as follows: Is it possible to establish a shave-ready edge on what seems to have been a very dull starting edge from Dovo.
I don't mean to sound bull-headed but please no responses telling me to send it to be professionally honed. I have no interest in that. If I need to get another stone so be it.
I'm needing to know if it's possible to establish a shave ready edge with this 8000 grit stone. I know if that is the case it will probably take a while.
Any help on the matter would be GREATLY appreciated guys.
