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.

My praise for your very instructive videos for their clarity and production values. Thank you for your willingness to advise me about my options and steer me in the right direction. Great customer service! I wish you every success in your business!
