Honing service

If you have a razor that stropping alone wont help and the edge needs honing and stropping your razor to get it back to shave readiness we can help you take the pain out of shaving by returning your razor to its former glory.

 

There are two levels of honing the first is for the razor that is butter knife blunt and needs a comprehensive hone and bevel reset.

The second level of honing is to re-fresh the edge that has become to dull for stropping to help.

 

This does not cover stripping down cleaning or polishing if you need this level of work please go to razor restorations to see what we can do for you.

 

The comprehensive honing service includes the bevel being reset on an 1000 grit stone and then refined on an 3000 grit stone, then on to an 8000 grit and then finished on an 12000 grit stone, stropped on a balsa paddle strop impregnated with green chromium oxide then on a heavy wool felt paddle strop with red oxide and finally well stropped on leather so it will easily pass the hanging hair test

 

The re-fresh hone is the same as the comprehensive but misses out the first two stones and starts at the 8000 grit stone then on to the 12000 grit stone, stropped on a balsa paddle strop impregnated with green chromium oxide then on a heavy wool felt paddle strop with red oxide and finally well stropped on leather so it will easily pass the hanging hair test
