    Let someone offer me a free, shave razor and see how fast I send an address! I'm okay with a strop, but I only have one razor, and it would give me something other than gillettes to compare against.

    I am willing to bet that if you are a sincere person in that and offered either of these two upstanding men a dialogue by PM you would find yourself with all the help you could ever want.

Put your location in your profile so you can get help like your asking for. Tc
    I agreed 100% on that learning to shave and strop properly must be you priority, when youíl be Able to do that you will understand more how to hone a straight. Of course there is lots of wayís to hone there is also the fact that maintaining your edge is also a part of honing. To me iíve Been straight shaving now since 2014 and thatís what I do. Iím not yet able do start whit the Bevel setting etc... but what I do now works for me cause I did start whit shave ready straights.
