Just got a Thiers-Issard -- Gary8152 05:43, 28 December 2010 (UTC)[edit source]
I Just got a Thiers-Issard 5/8 Taos straight razor and I am in the market for a honing stone even thought it came shave ready I know this edge wont last forever. I am looking only to maintain a great edge for this razor so preferably 10k-12k. I know that seems a bit high, but I feel this would provide a smoother edge resulting in more comfortable shave. I would like some feed back on which brands with links (to the site) are recommended for this range. I also have several much older blades which are in desperate need of honing to restore an edge so for these blades (which I will initially be using for practice) a double sided 4k/8k which from some of the feeds on the forums seems to be the best pyramid approach for setting an edge. Any help would be appreciated.
