    You'll have a lot of fun doing that! So many razors, so little time...

    I got the GS10k and the SG20k 2 weeks ago, I do like them both easy to use and quick also, I do like the feedback from my naturals more, but I suppose its what I have gotten used to.

    Im sure you will like it.

    I dont have a Naniwa 12k sadly, I know now I dont need one with having the SG10k and SG20K but I my still end up with one at some point, I did shave with a gold dollar that have been finished on 12k and it shave well enough.

    I own and use a Suehiro Gokumyo 20K. If you want ultra sharp easy to use its a winner. That having been said your skin should be the arbitor here. I part of the time finish on the Suehiro, but most of the time I prefer the comfort level I get from my natural stones. Razors honed/finished on the 20k are so sharp its not funny. I use it mostly to finish my hardest steel razors. My heavy Hart steel razors go well on the 20k. But my Dovo 6/8 Flowing is a nice shaving razor when finished on the Shobu asagi tamamoku. So the key is your skin, if your skin can cope with the acutely sharp 20k edge then go for it. My skin prefers a little more comfort. I have had the Suehiro since they arrived a few years back, and it will still be honing the razors of my grandson's kids.
