Condition: Polished, Sharpened and Shave Ready

Restoration Process:

The razor was disassembled. The blade and scales were cleaned and polished bringing a high mirror finish to the blade and restoring the original beauty of the acrylic scales! After being pinned back together the razor moved to our true honing process. 

Honing Process:

Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone were I begin to set the bevel. Once the bevel outine 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 shave ready!
