    Welcome,

    One of the most interesting aspects of straight razor shaving is the maintaining of the razor's edge. Keeping the razor's edge sharp enough to give us a comfortable, close shave is accomplished by many methods. We are going to take a look at some natural stones that are often used to maintain the razor's edge. These stones are found throughout the world and this link takes you to the website "Razor love stones"
    Special thanks to Straight Razor Place member Doorsch for providing this website to the straight razor community.

    Enjoy the journey,,,,,

    Enjoy the journey,,,,

    I've always wanted a pressure cooker like my mum had but my wife doesn't want to know. She thinks they are dangerous so I doubt I would be able to use

    I read once that you were more likely to break the speed limit listening to Bat out of Hell than any other song.
