I watched one of Glen's videos about using the Shapton 16K and 30K. If memory serves correctly, I believe he used the 30K for the 3-2-1. I sold my Shaptons, so the last time I honed all of my razors I substituted a lapped Swaty barber hone for the 30K. I'm still working my way slowly through the first post honing test shaves, and don't have any complaints so far.

SOTD 99%: 9 soaps & creams, SilkSmoke synthetic, General V2 by Colonial razors, Kai & Schick, Superior 70 aftershave splash + menthol + 444 asb
