Restoration: This razor went through our Straight Razor Restoration service. It was first polished to a near mirror finish, removing all active rust and as much metal as was safe for this grind. The scales were also polished to give a high luster. Honing starts out on a Chosera 1000 Wet stone where the bevel is set. Once the bevel outline is finished the razor proceeds to be honed with the Chosera 3000 where the bevel is cleaned up and refined. Next its on to the polishing stage showcasing the Aishyama 6000, then 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.
