Hey that’s fair dinkum on the Ballistol/water mix.
Took a rather tired Hart 7/8 and gave it about 75 x-strokes. Made me a believer. Next up are. PRC Kraken and Brian Brown 7/8.
Great advice. Thanks
No one sells it near my house for some reason. Wish I could try it out.
With Ballistol do you mix up a container and keep it around for awhile or does it need to be mixed every time you use it?
Do you put it in a spray bottle and just spray it onto the stone? If so, is there a favorite spray bottle? If not, what's your container and how do you use the product?
I assume you wash the stone with soap and water after each use to get the Ballistol off, is this right?
I've read of using this mixture on both the Zulu Grey and the Arkansas Hard Black. My ZG won't be shipped for months, but I might try this with the AHB.
What makes this better than water with a little bit of shaving soap?
Thanks and happy shaves,

Myself, I only put water or soap/water in a spray bottle. It’s hard to control the overspray. All other mixtures, homemade oil lube, water/glycerin and ballistol/water goes in a Contacts lens solution bottle. It naturally dispenses one drop at a time. I mix up only two ounces at a time. All I need is three or four drops even on my largest stones. Stones get a soap and water bath when done
