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.

To whom it may concern, I got my DMT Aligner Kit today and I just cant say enough about it and my experience with sharpeningsupplies.com. I got the extra extra fine stone along with the DMT deluxe aligner kit. My favorite knife now is as sharp as a scalpel. First Class Company and First Class Products. Truly a pleasure doing business with you.
