Time to think outside the box. Since many of us build a Slurry, to aide in honing our blades, are there different media that can be used?? I have used some Nagura Stones, to hone 6 razors, over the past week or so, with excellent results. These stones make a slurry, by giving off fine grit particles of sand, basically. I dont know the exact grit rating these particles are, but they are very fine. These Nagura, or Slurry Stones, can be costly. Can we not get the same results from pre-made powders?? Lets say, Silicon Carbide, or Diamond Powders?? I have seen them rated from 1000- 150,000 grit. They are advertized as being used in polishing applications. Anyone try this method before?? Any reason It wouldnt work?? ..
