HONES & STROPS
All hones & strops listed on this page will be personally tested to ensure viability for straight razor use. I will describe the characteristics of each hone as mostly I will be listing natural hones and they can vary from stone to stone. All strops listed will be cleaned and individually tested to ensure smooth use. They will be free of any nicks or cuts that could damage your straight razor edge. If you have any questions over any of the listings please contact me for more information.
40mm wide x 180mm long x 21mm deep Vintage Coticule Natural Combo- $110
This is a vintage coticule natural combination stone with a coticule layer approximately 5-7mm deep. This stone has a lovely wood grain texture and the manganese line doesn't affect honing one bit. This stone has medium speed on both slurry and water and is very easy to run a dilucot/unicot on. Very similar to recently mined La Grise coticules. The BBW side had some chips on the corners and these have been lapped out by chamfering the corners.
39mm wide x 175mm long x 15mm deep Vintage Coticule Glued Combo- $85
This is a vintage coticule glued combination stone (glued to a BBW instead of slate) with a coticule layer approximately 6-7mm deep. This stone is slow on slurry and water. I would not try to set bevels on it, but running a dilucot/unicot is no problem and just takes a little more time. Leaves a very smooth finish on your razor. The BBW side does have a little nick in the center that I'm not sure if it will affect honing or not.
50 x 270 mm Lynn Idwal - $225
This is a monstrous Lynn Idwal stone measuring 2 x 10.5" in dimensions and is 25-30mm deep in thickness. Best used with oil and leaves an edge similar to a Charnley Forest. Finisher only and a bit slow, but the mellow and sharp edge is worth it in the end. The top is lapped to 2000 grit and edges chamfered.
