Critical Thing About Straight Razors

The most critical thing about straight razors is the art to keep its edges sharp, if the edges are sharp they will not disappoint you when it comes to close shave. The strop only aligns the edges whereas honing sharpens them. honing stone is a requirement of long-term. 

 There are a lot of honing stones available in the market with various grades ( GRIT ), from 12000 to 500, very fine to very coarse, you must being from low so that you can go from dull to sharp, grit till you get the sharpness that you desire. 8000 and 4000 is the grit we recommend for a cutthroat but if it totally blunt then a coarser stone is what we would recommend. 



 Steps mentioned below are the steps that you must follow while sharpening your Cutthroat razor, always remember practice is the keep to be proficient as this is an art just the way shaving, gritting is started from slow and the stone would do its work. 

 Steps – 

  1. Clean your honing stone and tap some water on it, always remember imperfections in your honing stone mean imperfections in your cutthroat.
  2. with the honing stone facing you place your razor on it. 
  3. Now you need to pull your razor towards you on a 30-degree angle, the entire length of your razor’s blade must be drawn all across your honing stone, with no pressure let the grit and the razor’s weight do the work, you need to keep the edges of the blade flat.

4.after each stroke, it is your duty to check and make sure that the edge must not be drawn on the stone if the edge is drawn then the blade’s edge would go back to blunt. 

Follow the X pattern shown in the graphic below. 

  1. You must follow normal the  X pattern 
  2. Repeat the steps mentioned above based on your blades requirement.

Things to keep in mind 

  1. stropping is supposed to be done before and not after the shave because of it when you do it before it actually gets in a very nice form and the blades too get aligned and aftershave leads to microscopic breaking.  
  2. If you wish to prevent it from getting stiff and want to maintain it’s shape then you must hang it. 
  3. Always clean it properly

Don’t get disappointed when you do the stropping for the first time and even not on the 20th, you for sure will make millions of mistakes but you know that’s totally okay, it is an art and it would take ages to becomes perfect and there would come a day when your stopping would be as good as a professional as practices makes you perfect and if you wish to be perfect then you need to be patient same is with the shaving with a straight razor practice and patience is what you need to learn the art of shaving and stropping. 

This is all about the stopping and honing stone, keep practicing till you become almost perfect

Straight Razor Use And Care 

Straight razor was introduced in 1680 and since then they are in use for manual shaving for men. The other names that are used to recognize straight razor are cut-throat razor and open razor. Straight razor’s blade folds into its handle.  


Straight razors or open razors are mostly used in barber shops but one can use it in the home for personal use too. There are different types of straight razors like Forestal Straight Razor, Issard Straight Razor, Astrale Straight Razor Ebony Handle and many more. Straight or open razors are easy to use and also taking care of one does not demand much effort. 


These razors are easy to use but one should learn properly before using one. A little mistake while using can cause a big damage to your face. Let’s learn the use of straight razor step by step! 

 STEP 1 

Strop The Straight Razor 

To make sure that the very edge of the razor is straight, we strop the razor. To strop the razor, attach one side of the strop to any immovable object and tightly stretch its another end in your hand. 

 STEP 2 

Prepare Your Face 

Before shaving, wash your face with hot water to open your skin pores. Washing your face with hot water will give you a comfortable and painless shave. 

 STEP 3 

This step would tell you how you should hold your razor 

With your right hand if it is the dominator you need to hold your razor and if the left is then you know what to do. Your ring, middle and index fingers are supposed to be on the shank on the top, and the thumb needs to be on the underside of the razor’s shank.  

 STEP 4 

Using The Razor 

While your dominant hand is holding the razor, use your other hand to stretch the skin tightly. To avoid the cut on your face, hold the razor at about 30-degrees. You need to follow the direction of your hair’s growth, apply gentle strokes without giving much pressure. 

 STEP 5 

The Final Step 

After finishing the first shave, rinse and reshave but this time applying stroke in the opposite direction of hair growth. Once you are done with the shave, apply hot water and after-shave to your face. 

 Now you know how to use a straight razor. It seems easy, right? Well, taking care of straight or open razor is even easier. It does not require some kind of rocket science to take care of straight razor.  

 If maintained properly, a straight razor can last you for the lifetime. After every shave, don’t forget to wash it properly. Also, don’t forget to change the blade after every 8 to 10 shaves. Keep a strop for your razor as strop not only sharpens the edge but it also cleans the crud off the razor. There is a question that must be coming to your minds that what is the best time to strop the razor? Well, the best time to strop your razor is just before you shave. 20 to 25 amount of strops are enough. 

Now when you know everything about a straight razor, you are now ready to do shave with it!
