Ideal sharpening stone for precision woodworking tools, fine cutlery, and straight razors etc.
These fast cutting stones give you feedback as you work, so it's easier to feel and maintain the correct angle as you sharpen.
The honing stone measures 200mm x 75mm x 26mm.
Japanese Waterstones use water for a lubricant and flushing agent.
They're easier to clean than oilstones and they won't leave an oil residue on your tools.

Firstly, honing is a skill that requires a lot of time and practice.
A brand new or a restored cut throat razor supplied by Executive Shaving should not need honed for at least 9 months.
Honing will straighten the blade and remove any nicks, smooth the razor's edge and make the edge as sharp as it needs to be to shave you cleanly.
We strongly advise you to watch a few videos and read up on honing techniques online before you start honing your razor.
Why not take a look at our Shavepedia and read our guides to help you with in queries you may have about honing. Click here to learn more.
