    Welcome,

    One of the most interesting aspects of straight razor shaving is the maintaining of the razor's edge. Keeping the razor's edge sharp enough to give us a comfortable, close shave is accomplished by many methods. We are going to take a look at some natural stones that are often used to maintain the razor's edge. These stones are found throughout the world and this link takes you to the website "Razor love stones"
    Special thanks to Straight Razor Place member Doorsch for providing this website to the straight razor community.

    Enjoy the journey,,,,,

    Enjoy the journey,,,,

    Thanks. I was up in the air on several choices between Boker and Dovo. Went with the Boker because I liked the way it looked and the dealer made a deal

    Excellent razor choice! Boker factory edges in my experience are pretty suspect, so that's not at all surprising to me. I've never heard of them advertising
