1. I have a straight razor that I use to shave my face.
2. It is supremely kick-ass.
3. A straight razor needs to be honed every six weeks or so to retain above-mentioned kick-assery.
4. Different kinds of stones are used for honing and they vary in their grit (fMeaning how coarse or fine they are, fucktard).
5. To get it sharp, you'll need to progress the blade from coarsest grit to finest grit.
