Apex Arkansas Honing Stone for Open Razors Fine Grit is used for honing (sharpening) the edge of the blade when it dulls, this is an essential part of your cut throat razor maintenance kit.
Ideal for sharpening razors, surgical instruments, knives, cutlery and craft tools.
**The razor is shown for illustration purposes only, it is not included with the honing stone**
Dimensions: 200mm x 50mm x 20mm Fine grit topside (Grade 4)
The base of this whetstone has a strip of rubber glued on it - this ensures that the stone cannot slip on your work surface. Additionally it lifts the stone off the work surface by approx 5 mm which is a great assist when sharpening an open razor.
You should thoroughly soak the honing stone in water prior to honing and frequently re-soak during the honing process. Note that after honing and fine refinement of the edge of the blade, stropping with a hanging leather and canvas strop is still required prior to shaving.
A brand new or a restored cut throat razor supplied by Executive Shaving should not need stropped/honed for at least 9 months. However, please read up on stropping in our Shavepedia. For more information, click here.
