Has your straight razor been feeling dull lately? Have you been pulling or tugging more than usual while shaving? If yes, then your razor may need to be re-sharpened or honed. I am currently offering straight razor honing services. They start at $8.99/razor for a basic hone due to normal usage (this should be done every couple months depending on your shaving frequency and beard type). Your razor will have to be shipped to Glendale Heights, Illinois.
Please ensure that the brand of your razor is not listed on the Straight Razor Place - Razors to Avoid List. These razors are made of a type of metal not fit for honing and shaving.
$8.99 for 1 razor.
$14.99 for 2 razors.
$19.99 for 3 razors.
4 or more razors at $5.99/razor.
I do basic honing on razors which were previously shave-ready. I also fix chips and rebuild bevels at an additional cost. A 4k/8k/12k progression is used followed by 50x wool felt, 50x leather. 1 to 2 layers of electrical tape is applied to the spine in order to keep hone-ware at minimum.
I only shave with razors I have personally honed.
Razors will be shave tested, sanitized, oiled, and will be returned in a heavily padded envelope, unless an alternate method is requested. Typical turnaround time is 1-2 days per razor, not including shipping. RETURN SHIPPING IS FREE. Shave test videos of freshly honed razors are uploaded on our YouTube channel.

Before sending me your razor, please ensure that you don't send Chinese or Pakistani razors, and novelty knives made to look like razors because they just don't hold the edge well.
