    +1 on all the advise - I took on honing and shaving at the same time because I'm extremely persistent and get intensely interested in my hobbies. It was a long and frustrating road to say the least. Now I have amassed a collection of razors and hones and have reached a point where I can just about hone most razors without an issue. That took honing every day for about a year - not joking. I love honing razors - now I do it about three days a week just to play around with a new stone or razor. You can do what I did but be prepared to be disappointed and frustrated for a long time - especially if you're honing with an unknown stone.

    Great help! Thanks gents. I gave it a go and it did cut the whiskers but did slightly tug so i will be attempting to hone it soon. I will invest in a good quality set and use this cheapo one to practice on
