    Default Honing for a beginner in Poland

    Hello Gentlemen,

    Got two straights, a Wapi and an old grandpa's Schutze. Both can shave, I shave with them, because they give me less to none razor burn than dispos, but there's some pulling and it definitely is not what "shave ready" means and what a beginner should start with :/ or probably anyone

    Is there someone in Poland that would do these for me? Nearby countries could work, too, but if you wanted to charge me for honing I'd have to consider the price + shipping costs.

    regards,
    Matt

    You might also want to try to contact an ebay seller named Open_Razor. He apparently has a shaving shop in Krakow or Warsaw (sorry, i can't remember which) and he sells Straights, hones and the like. He might do honing, or know someone who does. He's got some really good products, as well, and is very friendly.

    Holy Crap! I never even noticed that!

    Well, I guess he's doubly recommended!

    Hey Pals,

    I really need help with these two! Someone from Germany, Slovakia, Czech, Ukraine, Belarus?? Or maybe even further, recently got some small packets from UK via Royal Armail, shipping was merely around 2 GBP...

    They're not sharp enough, shave is really rough, have mercy :|

    What do you need exactly?
    Want them honed?
    I'm in Berlin. Shipping costs will probably not be as low but depends on weight.

    Well... yes! Posting from PL will be around €2,5 - I assumed steel wapi and another (much lighter) straight will fall within 350-500 g limit. From what I found out on Deutsche Post sending them back will probably be by Großbrief International for €3, am I correct?

    PM me with details on payment etc.
