Any reputable Honing services?

    My straight is starting to get a little uncomfortable to shave with. I used to enjoy shaving with it, but now it's become a chore. It just doesn't cut the way it used to and even lapping on a compound embedded strop hasn't brought the edge back. Stropping a good 40/50 times before a shave makes it usable still, but it doesn't do much. So, it's time to hone.

    Is there anyone reputable here who can do it or can refer me elsewhere? I royally suck at sharpening most things and I really don't want to invest in numerous stones to do it myself.

    I thought so. I tried reaching out through his website a while ago and didn't see a response so I wasn't sure. Maybe the reply got lost in my junk folders or something. I'll hit him up again then.

    @gssixgun is a member here and hopefully will be along shortly. Also a member here in the honning biz is @HolyRollah , I am not sure Kevin is taking on work now. Another recommendation is Whipped Dog.

    Brad Maggard is another good option. The form and instructions are right on their website.

    I would hone it with pleasure, but shipping it back and forth would make free honing pretty expensive!
