After nearly eight months of straight razor related purchases it is time to get rid of some of the items that are no longer being used.  I am selling the hones as a lot and the strop either separately or together with the hones at a reduced price.  Prices include US Priority Mail shipping and insurance as well as PayPal fees.  Please PM me to purchase and feel free to ask any questions here on this thread as it may be helpful to others.

First up is my first honing setup, it is a great set that served me well as I learned to hone.  All hones are flat and ready to go and should give you hundreds of honing sessions worth of service.  Included are a King 1000 bevel setter ($20 new), Norton 4000/8000 combo older USA/Italy version ($80), Naniwa Flattening Stone ($20), Chinese "12k" ($30) and finally a Japanese Ocean Blue Tsushima touch-up stone ($30).  I have about $180 into this set and will sell for $100

Next is my first quality strop, a Portland Razor Co. 3" Burnside Brown English Bridle Strop with Poly secondary, treated with Chromium Oxide on the inside.  This strop is in very good condition with no nicks or cuts, but some fine scratches which do not effect it's ability to maintain an edge.  The full 3" width makes stropping very easy and the heavy draw helps to make sure that you are keeping the blade pressure light.  This strop wouldn't be for sale if I didn't discover that I just prefer 2.5" strops.  It retails for $70 new, yours for $40 or $30 when purchased with the hone lot.
