Straight Razor Honing Service

€20.00 VAT Free

I own several hones of different grits that can put a straight razor in shave-ready state. I don't use any machinery to cut the razor and set a new bevel. All the honing process is from start to finish done by hand by me. I'm against the use of machinery when it comes to setting a cutting edge on a straight razor because, being a mechanical process, the razor is removed a considerable amount of steel and gets worn out too fast. Also, the resulting edge isn't as keen as the one set by hand using several hones. So, that's why this mechanical process, besides being unable to produce a good result on the edge, also shortens the lifespan of the razor which I firmly believe that can last at least 100 years with proper care.

I can't accept razors that are very rusty, broken or have a significant smile or frown.
