Paste came with a Lancelot I purchased almost a year ago. Being new to the game I learned the hard way that the Lancelot was not shave ready. NA re-honed it which made it better than it was but still not as smooth as my French or German blade so I stuck it in a drawer with the intentions of trying to improve it with some paste one day ( I really liked the weight and style of the Lancelot ). That day came this past wknd when I found the NA paste in my drawer so I pulled out the Lancelot and gave it a nice long run on the strop with this paste. The difference was night & day - If I hadn't known which blade I'd shaved with I'd have sworn it was one of my other two, paste put a very nice edge on the SS blade & I got one of the closest shaves I've had since my conversion to the straight razor. Highly recommend it if your steel needs a touch up!
I got into shaving with a straight razor about 5 years ago. I purchased an expensive razor that was shave ready, and started right away. After about two shaves, the razor hurt every time I used it. No problem, I bought a razor strop off of eBay, and stropped that razor for about 5 minutes. When I finally shaved, it still hurt. My solution? Buy an even more expensive razor. Again, after two shaves, it was too dull to use, and stropping this one didn't help either. In frustration, I put the razors away for the next 5 years, until I decided I didn't want about $200 worth of razors just sitting next to my sink. I watched videos, and searched the internet, when I came across the Naked Armor site. I purchased a nice strop (not a cheap eBay one) and their strop paste, and gave it another go. WOW, just wow!. After about five minutes of using the strop and strop paste, both razors are as sharp as when I first got them. Very easy to use, and very fast.
This item really works at keeping a nice edge on my razor.
High-quality paste for sharpening the awesome straight razor from Naked Armor.
I used this in conjunction with the frugal man's strop that produced fantastic results. My wife approves of my new baby's bottom smooth face complements of Naked Armor.
