All of the shave ready straights that I sell in my store are professionally sharpened by world class honemeister Sham Imanli. For those interested in honing their own razors, Sham offers a few tips in this video.

Gentlemen:
Sham is not only a dear friend, but he is also my honing teacher. He, Randy Tuttle and Lynn Abrams, I should say. Last summer I spent two days in Kansas City with Sham and what an unforgettable visit. Sham is a master at honing, almost cosmic. He is also a gentleman with a great soul. Yes, by all means, watch his honing video. Sham also has an excellent stropping video. Phil, thanks for running Sham's honing video.

A great video. I have been giving a good deal of thought to trying a straight razor. My hesitancy is due, in part, to cost but more to not having the skills and accessories to get and keep the razor shave ready.
