I've spent the better part of 45 years reseaching the cutting edge and passing along what I've learned. That's what our patented Razor Edge products are all about. Helping you get an edge that cuts safer, surer, and with less effort.
I first became intrigued with the straight razor, hone and strop in 1951 during the Korean War. That fascination was to become the core of my life's work. After the service, I began to compile information for the world's first detailed book on the art of sharpening. Researching the subject led to perfecting the tools and methods necessary for the ultimate edge.

Over the years, we've become famous as the Guinness Book world record holders for sharpening and shaving with a double bladed axe. That's something I wouldn't want you to try at home. But believe me, when you try our products on your own tools, you'll come away knowing there's simply no better way to produce a safer, surer, better performing cutting edge than with these Razor Edge Systems.
