Description

This listing is for a straight razor honing service only.

The photo is just to show an example of a pair of straight razors i have restored previously.

When you wish to use my honing service, simply place your order and pay via paypal. From there i will email my address details for you to send your straight razor to me.

Once you receive my address details, please email me to confirm along with new photos/files of your straight razor, so i can evaluate the condition.

Honing process:
After re-setting a fine bevel, i use a progression of water stones to hone the blade. From there i refine the cutting edge with progressive diamond pasted balsa strops. To give the edge a final superior polish, the blade is stropped on a pasted strop of 50,000 grit, stropped again on a paddle strop coated with a black polish and finally finished on a plain Sealskin paddle strop.

"Can't get any better! Super friendly seller, super fast delivery. Thanks Graham"


All freshly honed razors are shave tested by myself with a same day turnaround for single straight razors.

I also specialise in honing matched pairs and seven day sets.

The return postal service will include signed for global priority.

Everything is done by hand, absolutely no machines or grinders here.

When your blade is damaged, like a small chip in the blade and requires more work, i ask you to contact me for bespoke servicing, before you send your straight razor.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
