Last week I called in to Liam at the Waldorf to get my old Solingen open razor sharpened. I have a strop at home but what this razor really needed was a hone. I need to pick up one of these honing stones and practice honing myself. To show you what razor honing is all about, down below is a video of Liam at the Waldorf honing another razor.

Written on the blade is "Bismarck" Best German Hollow Ground".

And here's me stropping the blade later at home on my leather strop (a 1940s Illinois Razor Strop Co. strop)
