Which hardness would be most suitable for sharpening a knife similar in style to a straight razor? I ask because I play the oboe and we often have to make our own reeds instead of buying them. A little stone like this would work great and I could keep it in my case in case I needed to sharpen my knife.
These knifes have to capable of lifting cane off, not merely whittling it off like a boy scout with a pocket knife. So it it needs to be pretty sharp.

I would suggest either stone. You want to use surgical black or translucent. These are the 2 hardest stones and is what we recommend for sharpening straight razors. So from the description of the knife you use either stone would be a good match for it. Also using honing oi is an absolute must when sharpening this style of blade. Thank you for your inquiry

You'd only need a stone like this to reform the edge .....strop your blade each time to keep the edge from going.
