    Sorry

    I'm a believer in the right tool for the right job.
    These quotes answer your question perfectly. I too have wanted a natural progression, but IME there is no better bevel setter than a synthetic like a Chosera 1K. Some are faster like the shapton gs series, but you had better use tape if you have some bevel work to do.

    I have spent thousands of dollars on stones over the years and have found what works for me. I like to get to the finish line as quick as I can as easy as I can, then match the finisher to the particular razor's need. Setting a bevel on a polishing stone of course can be done done...but why? Use a bevel setter, then a pre polisher, a polisher, and a finisher for a razor.

    I have a BBW on the back of a coticule that can really set a bevel quick with a good slurry.
