Caring for your straight razor -
Let’s make one thing clear. Honing a straight razor is not like sharpening a knife.
The stones used for razors are much, much finer in grade -
Straight razors are forged, ground, sharpened and honed at the factory when made.
Of these processes, only honing is practical for the owner. Botch a honing job and
the razor will need specialist resharpening -
A straight razor, unlike a kitchen knife or hunting knife, doesn’t need to have a
strong blade -
Let’s say you have purchased a stone -
Lay the stone flat on a surface it won’t slide around on -
Now slide the blade up the stone, ensuring that the edge is leading and the back
and edge keep in contact -
We should stress that honing is quite an art and that beginners should take their
time. Concentrate on two things -
And that can’t be a bad thing!
