    Default Suffer from HAD? - How many do you have?

    I thought I would pose a funny question. How many different "razor" hones (hones 1k and above including pastes and sprays) do you have? I've only got a meager collection of about 8 hones:

    1k chosera
    1k shapton glass
    4/8 norton
    4k glass
    8k glass
    phig
    16k glass
    crox

    so how about you? And are there support groups for people suffering from HAD?

    If you only count manufactured or commercial stones I think I have around 10 that are over 1k and probably 5 bench strops with high grit sprays or CrOx (these are mainly gathering dust these days). If you count stones I made myself probably more like 25 or 30 and growing!

    I once suffered from a mild case of HAD while searching for a honing setup that I can be pleased with. I have been happy with my chosera 1k, naniwa 3k-8k-12k Japanese natural finisher for more than 2 years now.

    Previous relationships include the norton 4k-8k as well as a short affair with a zulu grey...my j-nat forgave me. My first stone, a hess barber hone was accidentally dropped and damaged, it is in a better place now.
