$85.00 USD


Offered here are classic, old mined Thuringian water razor hones from the Sonneberg/ Steinach area in the Thuringian mountains of Germany. Most famous labelled under the Escher brand, these stones have been treasured by barbers for more than 200 years for putting a fine and smooth edge on straight razors. These particular stones are the desirable soft and easy to use light green variety of the slate.
This is a vintage hone, collected as an end cut, leftover from the original mined stones or a stone with irregular form or coloring.
These are natural stones, so small hairline cracks or small chips or voids on the hone sides or back may be present. On many examples we've sealed the sides and back to prevent any water from intruding into the stone during use.

NOTE: Razor is shown to give an idea of size only and is not included.
