This razor underwent our complete Straight Razor Restoration Service. It was first polished, removing all active rust to reveal new metal and a mirror shine. Next, the scales were handcrafted depending specifically for this razor and expertly fashioned with new pins providing support, style, and control.
Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone were I begin to set the bevel. Once the bevel outline is finished I move onto the Chosera 3000 where the bevel is cleaned up and refined. Next its on to the polishing stage which starts out on the Aishyama 6000 and moves to the naniwa 12000. After the 12k, a perfectly good shave can occur. But we like to take it one step further and finish with a high polish on the Suehiro Gokumyo 20000. After honing, the blade is stropped, oiled, and arrives shave ready! Please do not strop this razor before your first shave.
