Hot diggity dog, this simple honing block (it doesn't actually sharpen the blades) extends the life of a disposable razor by many times. Not only will this save money in the long run, it reduces waste, all pluses in my book.
Better than Blade Buddy. And you can sharpen just by wetting the razor.
Easy to use, works well. Will save me from purchasing some many high priced razor blades.
I am constantly shocked by the price of women's razors and they dull so quickly. I was just getting ready to buy another package of expensive 3 blade razors when I found this Hone Alone razor sharpening block.
I was skeptical at first, not sure it would work. However, I thought if it did, it could save on a lot of razor costs and help reduce my carbon footprint a little more.
Wow! It"s so easy to use and very effective. I only wish it was around years ago!
Such a cool invention and the shop teacher who invented it is the poster guy for why public schools should keep programs that foster this kind of creativity.
I will be buying more of these as gifts. Thanks for a great product!
I am now on my 35th shave from the same Gillette Blade. I continue to be amazed. My shave is smoother than it was 60 years ago when I used a new blade. I have three sons. I bought each of them a Hone Alone. I bet they get the same results I have enjoyed. This is a Great Buy - Almost unbelievable, but it is true. Don't hesitate. Buy one for yourself and others for family members and friends!
I bought this for my brother- he puts his disposable razor in a mug of oil to help it last longer. This works better and is not an oily mess.
I was dubious about this purchase, but was I ever pleasantly surprised. It does everything Keith said it would do. I was about to change the expensive Gillette blade after using it five times. My Hone Alone Sharpening Block arrived and I simply sharpened the used blade. I am still using that blade after three weeks. The blade is sharp, the shave is smooth and close. I expect to get more Great shaves with that old blade. I will order one for my son. I HIGHLY recommend the Hone Alone Razor Sharpening Block!!
Started using it immediately upon receiving it. It smoothed out worn blades.
it does what it said it would and i can't believe that it works so well. i have used it for my razor and my wife's and my daughter's. my blade cost will drop drastically. thank you for finding this wonderful product.
Hone Alone arrived just as I was about to change the razor blade. Instead, a few swipes brought the old blade back to life. Now on fourth resharpening cycle still using the same blade.
The Hone Alone Story
Hone Alone was created by professional woodworker Keith Brandman. Keith’s passion for green solutions, together with over four decades of sharpening chisels and plane irons, informed his final design.
Your blades will live five to seven times longer by wetting and sliding them against the honing pad—opposite to the direction you shave. You’ll be getting 35 to 40 shaves from your run-of-the-mill cartridge.
