        The best hone for a straight razor is found in woodworking shop - one
        of those white ceramic stones.  Very high grit.

        Just remember NEVER shave against the growth of the beard with a
        straight razor (don't shave in the direction you can feel the bear)
        otherwise, you will have a red face.

        I cried when they discontinued Palmolive Lather (not the "Brushless")-
        it was excellent - now I have to import it from Europe - it is still
        made in Belgium - and that one has Palm Oil (as in Palm-Olive) which
        the cheap USA product lacked (sadly).  The Belgium PalmOlive Lather is
        much better than the old USA stuff.

        I shave with straight (open razor) razor made with Solingen steel - no
        more tortoise handles thought - save the turtles!

        :-)
