      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!
