Thuringian Yellow Green & Light Green German Classic Water Razor Hones Sharpening Stones - CHOOSE YOUR STONE

$110.00 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.
This are vintage hones, collected as end cuts, leftover from the original mined stones or stones with irregular form or coloring. They have been obtained from the mine's original workshop location by a German whetstone expert, and newly cut into hones.
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 the sides and back have been sealed to prevent any water from intruding into the stone during use.

Each hone includes a complimentary slurry stone, as pictured.

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