    The diamond progression thing was popular about when I began straight razor shaving.
    Worked a treat if you did not overdo it, but the romance was short-lived most of the time.

    Too much of a good thing seemed inevitable.
    Razors developed a steep, rounded bevel which would become sorta dangerous!
    TOTAL bevel job to get them right again.
    Diamonds do work. Just too good? For your own good.

    Honing is pleasant, and infrequent for touch-ups.

    I've never used CrOx, or diamonds, so maybe I don't know what I'm missing.

    I'm going to be going on travel for about 8 months though. Thinking about what my setup should be... thinking right now of thinning down to two or three choice razors, a good boar brush, linen & leather strop, and a barber's hone... Might stick with a JNat though and a couple of nagura... or an Ark... hmmm...

    Rest assured, regardless of what you pack, the time will come when you wish you had brought one more thing.
    Good luck!
    If you don't care where you are, you are not lost.
