    When I started out all I had was the Norton 4/8 and I set many a bevel with that 4K and it worked fine. Looking back now that I have more hones and I have a Norton 1K I don't think I would start at the 4K again for true bevel setting. It took a lot of time on the 4K and I don't think I saw any advantages over the 1K at least on the razors I worked on.

    Imo a bevel is a bevel. 1k 4k, 8k etc. We could set em on a cnat too. As was said reasonable use of a 1k stone shouldnt create issues.

    What grit do you think the belt was that he removed the chips with?

    Actually, I believe much of the problem with new hard custom razors chipping, is from aggressive belts with too much pressure.

    Once these razors are honed a few times and enough steel is removed, the chipping stops.

    The video is on youtube . You would likely get a more accurate answer there than my guess.

    Coarse belts maybe, temper issues on the thinnest part of the blade(the edge)maybe.
