    Default Zulu Grey

    What's the word on the Zulu Grey natural stones?

    If you could define what you are asking about it would help to have informed responses. Such as 'Are the Available'? 'Are they a finisher'? etc

    Like most finishers, they are as good as the individual using them.
    I enjoy the edge that I get off them. Here are a few links to help give you an idea on how they perform.

    Yes they 'CAN' be a finisher. However as with 100% of All natural rocks they can vary in how they perform. If you are wanting to learn to hone I Highly recommend that you start with synthetics such as the Norton 1K and the 4/8K combo.

    If you can't get a CCC shave (Clean Close &Comfortable) shave off of a 8K synthetic then you are pouring money down a rat hole pursuing higher grit synthetic hones or Naturals such as the Zulu.

    I own the Zule Grey and the SIlkvein. Very capable stones but not for a beginner only because of the high cost, if you got money to spend and want them, great. Nothing to difficult about them after a little practice and lots of patience, be warned there is about a two month wait on orders.

    Like others said, start with a synthetic for low cost and consistent learning. PM me if you want some recommendations.

    I will add what Glen (GSSIXGUN) has as his signature and I find it so very true!

    All I will say is that if you don't have a bevel you're just polishing a dull edge.

    Ok. I have nortons 1k 4k and 8k. Also a naniwa 10k. .5 spray and .25 paste.

    The razors are: Boker Elite. Dovo Bismarck. Ralph Aust Imperial. TI basic. Kanetaka kamisori.

    All new.

    Then i bought a used Jerry Stark custom. It came in with such a smooth edge. It was finished with a ZG. So, i want one! My edges are good, but this one is noticeably superior.

    I know there is a learning curve. I just think that i am ready for the next step forward.
