As you know Im new to all this, and have just bought a norton 4/8 K, Chinese 12K and a stone pond.
I know that I need to flatten / lap both stones but am trying to not spend much more!!!
SO, my stone pond comes with some lapping stuff, but im not sure if its just a gimmick of if it will really do the job,
could you take a look for me - its about midway down the page and let me know if i will be able to flatten my norton and 12k using what they describe as...."* Safety-glass top with PSA-backed laminate & 90x silicon-carbide compound for lapping stones * Glass is guaranteed to be flat enough to lap to a flatness better than 0.001" of stone *"
Please let me know guys, if I HAVE to buy a seperate lapping stone I will, the priority is not ruining my razor or stones.
