Finishing Stones for Straight Razors

While there are several options, there are a few that are very popular.

  1. Synthetic Water Stones: Grit ranges for finishing 8k-25k (average)
  2. Natural Stones
    1. Belgian Coticule: Stone from the Addrennes mountain range. Known for variable hardness levels and the ability to hone with one stone
    2. Japanese Natural: Variable hardness levels. Lot’s of blade feel.  Can be expensive
    3. German Thurigian: Slate like stone. Escher was a major producer from the 1790s until mid 20th century.

When is your collection really complete? Do you have a Bucket List.  Are you content with your collection? I’ll tell you my thoughts.

Last show I asked a particular question regarding adjustable razors. Because of the response I am going to keep it open until the next show!
