    My barber has put me onto this mob in Brisbane.

    I haven't been there yet so can't comment on anything more than their existence.

    This is why I dont own any razors younger than 50 years, and have never paid more than 45 bucks for a razor.

    A big recommendation for www.himage.com.au and Lie-Nielsen Toolworks Australia | Home

    I ordered a razor, brush, strop and a few creams/balms etc from Himage Sunday night, and they arrived Tuesday morning. Each individual item was gift wrapped. A free token gift was enclosed. And amazingly in this day and age, a hand written card saying to enjoy my new razor products and to have a great week. A touch of old times perhaps.

    I ordered a Norton 4000/8000 stone from Lie Nielsen on Monday morning. It arrived overnight from across the other side of our fine country.

    Very happy chap. That being said - I have a new razor kit... Etc... But no honing skills Luckily I have another (honed) razor arriving tomorrow (Lakeside Cutlery), and a few cheapies from eBay to practice on in the coming week.

    for a seccond i thought that strop was a beauty & barber (B&B)... I'm guessing its not as the handles look a little different. its the hook at the top that made me think of it.

    The B&B strops may be an imitation of what you have.

    This is the one it reminds me of..

    For a metal polish i just use "Meguiars NXT All Metal Polish" from super cheap auto. Its just under $20 but it would last you 10 life times for razors.

    After a 1.5 or 2k wet and dry it gives an awesome mirror finish, used by hand or with my dremel buffer wheel.

    But there are many alternatives for metal polishers and one of the few things you can commonly get in Australia lol
