Ardennes Coticule – the last operational Coticule mine.
Brent Beach’ pages on sharpening – an excellent resource that offers a ton of good sharpening theory, oriented to tool sharpening, yet his articles easily translate to straight razors as well. Highly recommended.
Eastern Smooth – a eloquent blog site by Jim Rion. Follow our man on a discovering journey through an astonishing world of razors, hones and strops.
RazorEmporium – Matt Pisarcik is a personal friend. He hosts a cozy online shop, where he offers vintage shaving gear.
ShaveTheMonkeys – Charlie Lewis hosts a small website dedicated to building and restoring razors. He has a lot of good information about techniques that require no expensive and specialised gear.
Scrupleworks – Tororlf Myklebust is by many of our members considered to be Coticule.be’s “resident strop expert”. He runs a small “one man” strop making and refurbishing operation that does not compromise about quality. Highly recommended.
