    Default Hello from missouri

    just started shaving with a japanese straight razor... it came fairly sharp/shave ready... thought to myself... i need to hone this thing up good and sharp, i wanna pass the "hanging hair test" seems i have boogered up the thing pretty good I don't own a traditional "western" straight razor nor have I ever shaved with one... but i am looking for a good traditional razor, although i am on a budget! got bunches of questions...

    1. where can i get my kamisori honed professionally
    2. where can i learn to hone my own kamisori
    3. are japanese stones different from american stones (hones/waterstones)... meaning i saw somewhere that a 6k grit american stone might be an 8k in japan
    4. where can i find a good traditional western straight razor

    Welcome to the forum,

    I've no experience with Kamisoris but plenty here have, I'm sure they will be along soon with their collective wisdom.

    Enjoy your stay
