Discussion of the Week: “Choosing the Right Straight Razor”

  • All straight razors are not created equal.
  • There are different sizes, grinds and types.
  • How do you know which one is right for you?

Last year I created a straight razor guide that was published on Sharpologist.  This guide goes over all the different types of straight razors and was created to help with the decision process. Check it out here!



Training Tip of the Week: “How to Strop a Straight Razor”

  • Stropping requires some practice and patience.
  • Improper stropping can lead to a dull edge.
  • Here is a video of how I do it J


Training Tip of the Week: “How to Make a Cheap Strop”

  • Newspaper provides an excellent stropping surface at a great price.
  • Perfect to learn technique on. You don’t have to work about nicking it!
  • The ink in the paper provides just enough abrasion to properly strop the blade.
  • I made a short video and a budget strop that works. Check it out!

  • Matt and his team have been providing valuable services for 8 years
  • Specializing in repair and restoration of vintage safety and straight razors.
