Natural stone for razors

Wed Oct 31, 2012 8:52 am

Hello Sir, my name is Marco.

Would like to know if you ship to Italy, please. I'm looking for a Japanese Natural Stone as a finisher for my straight razors and was thinking about this one here http://www.chefknivestogo.com/hinak.html Your thoughts, please? Also, does the stone already come flat and with bevelled edges?

Thanks so much,

Hi Marco,

Yes we do ship to Italy.

The stone you mentioned is our best selling natural stone on the website. It's purchased mostly by razor sharpeners as a final finishing stone. The ozuku koppa works very well for this. The stone is flat and the edges are not bevelled. I suggest you flatten it anyway just to make sure it's dead flat and then round the edges a little before you use it. This is not as critical with kitchen knives but it is with razors.
