Thanks @Tony. I have designated one straight razor, an Otto Busch 164, which I acquired through you quite some time ago to be my practice razor.
It still shaved to begin with but could do with a touch up so I figured why not try to do that myself while practicing on that coti.
I follow a routine I found here from @Bart.
Just shaved with it…….let’s say not quite there yet. It shaves but I’ve had more comfortable shaves.
Practice makes perfect I guess….
This was given to me by a friend. Belonged to his father. Not really sure but this is a coticule right? Pretty worn and dirty. Went at it with some dental equipment….
Looks to be one massive piece of coticule. It’s relatively soft. Flattening wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be. The surface is pretty small 85x45/23 mm, so honing could be a challenge. If anything it could be a great slurrystone.
Anyone here that can tell something about it?
Nice, it Looks like a piece of coticule. I know that people walk around the old mines and pick up pieces of coti, it could be that this is one of those pieces.
If it’s a soft one you could surely use it as a slurry stone
