Question: I need a sharpening stone when my straight razor gets too dull to sharpen with my strop. What do you recommend?

Answer: A straight razor, unless it becomes severely dull can be brought back into shape with the Norton 4000/8000 combination stone. This stone is very popular because both grits are suitable for straight razor use.

I had a wonderful experience with your salesperson. He treated me with courtesy, showed care about my needs, and taught in a polite manner. His patience is commendable and his knowledge is a real asset. Thank you much!
