Got myself a Zulu Grey a while ago. Yesterday I took it out to re-hone my one razor. Watched a couple of videos online about how to work with this stone, and then set off (My straight was starting to pull and tug, even when stropped).

SPent about 20mins just going through the motions, every time a little bit lighter with the pressure.

Then stropped it and started to shave. Man, what an awesome feeling. the razor just glided over my face, no pulling etc. Awesome!

I am so impressed with this stone. Not to soft, not to hard and abrasive.

Have a good day gents!

Very nice Henk.

Did you create a slurry and if so with what stone?

Hi Thug.
Yes, I created a slurry. Micheal from Zulu Grey forgot to send me the slurry stone, and he said he would, however, it is a couple of months later and no stone. So I took a bit of flat granite, attached it to 1000grit sand paper and made a slurry with that. Was quite good slurry that came out.

I wasn't impressed with Michael's service when I dealt with him.

Interesting slurry, well done!!
