Posted By: SteveHThis is the second one that I’ve bought. One of my razor progressions is the Shapton Glass 3k HR, the Shapton Glass 8k HC, then any natural or synthetic finisher. The 8k HC is an extremely good ‘transition’ stone from the bevel setter to finisher. It is also one of the very few 8k stones that I can get a decent shaving edge from.
Comparing the 8k HR against the 8k HC, the HC is a little slower and polishes to a much higher finish, essentially a mirror finish.
Just a great stone.
