I thought, given the usual advice to newbies to have their first razor honed by an expert, it might be usual to start a thread to compiled names and some sort of locating information for various honemeisters who 1) are known and respected as such, and 2) are ameanable to requests to hone up a razor in exchange for a reasonable fee.
Of course, as everyone points out, a good way to go is always buying a pre-honed used razor from someone you trust to be a good edge on it (what I did), buying a new razor from Tony Miller and asking him to hone it, and buying a new razor from Classic Shaving and having them send it by Lynn for a hone before it gets to you.
But for a newbie who has a razor and wants it honed, who might they go to? The more options, the better, I figure. Especially in the UK/EU, since most of the names I've heard are based stateside.
