A straight razor is only as good as the edge that was put on it. Every razor will dull eventually, and then you get the dreaded tugging. Almost as if you were using a cartridge razor again. Not to worry, I will put a fresh, sharp edge on your razor for you. Best part is, (for the majority of razors), its free! Yup, you pay the shipping, I do the work. Pretty good deal I'd say. Every razor gets its bevel set, and then progresses up to 12000 grit Japanese water stones and finished with chromium oxide. I strop it, oil it for protection, and send it off. All you have to do is start shaving. Well, I'd suggest lathering up first.
