We've selected some of the most frequently asked questions. If we haven't answered your question here, simply contact us and we will answer you in 1-2 business days.
Where are you located?
Our store is located online, so technically we are everywhere. But, if you must ask, we are based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We do not have a brick and mortar store. We are online only.
I'm New to Wet Shaving. Where Do I Begin?
If you're new to wet shaving, you're probably feeling a little overwhelmed. Lucky for you we have that covered. A customer of mine suggested that we create a category for those new to wet shaving or those rediscovering wet shaving. We decided to call it......well, New to Wet Shaving? simply click here.
Basic wet shaving is a razor, brush and a shaving cream or soap of your choice. I do recommend adding a pre shave oil as well.
If you're still not sure if these products are right for you, or you need more guidance, just email me at email@example.com
What Happens if I Cut Myself?
I prefer to think of them as nicks or weepers, cuts are a bit dramatic. First and foremost, even the best wet shavers out there can get a weeper. Here's a few tips that have helped me out:
1) Take the time to prepare the skin. Taking the time to prep the skin will mean fewer weepers. Use warm water to open the pores. Right after a shower is perfect, but not necessary;
2) If you have sensitive skin, or would like an added level of protection, consider a pre-shave oil. Pre-shave oils help keep the skin moisturized and supple to prevent the blade dragging or irritating the skin.
3) Never use the razor without a shaving cream or shave soap.
4) Do not over use your blades. Blades typically last 4 shaves.
5) Let the razor do all the work for you. Blade angle is important, but let the weight of the razor do the work for you.
6) Use cold water after the shave to take away any irritation and close the pores.
7) If you have a weeper, use cold water. Another great alternative is an Alum block or stick. Yes, we sell those too!

What is your Shipping Policy?
When I receive an order, my goal is to process the order and have it delivered to Canada Post within 2-3 business days. Often it is much sooner.
I offer free shipping in Winnipeg and a 25km radius from my location. In Manitoba- I offer free shipping with a minimum spend of $30.00. Orders in Winnipeg are normally delivered personally by me. Depending on the order, sometimes I will contact the customer to arrange a suitable time for drop off. I don't want your order to sit unattended on your steps. If drop off isn't suitable, I can also arrange a pick up. Alternatively, I use a shipping company at no cost to the customer (in Winnipeg and 25km radius)
Orders over 65.00 qualify for free shipping in Canada and the USA. Orders under 65.00 pay a calculated rate for shipping via Canada Post.
If you have special requirements or any concerns regarding a shipment or delivery, please let me know.
Ship internationally? We currently offer shipping to the United States and select countries. Orders to the USA that meet the minimum spend, qualify for free shipping. Orders that do not meet the minimum spend have a calculated rate for shipping. Orders that ship to select countries have calculated shipping based on destination and the size and weight of the order.
Most orders shipped are WITHOUT tracking. If you would like tracking, please select that option at checkout. Shipping outside of North America, without tracking and by ground can take at least 84 business days to reach the destination!

What is your Return Policy?

Why is it called Stone Field?
Stone Field Shaving Company Ltd. was named after my last name, Steinfeld. Translated into English, Steinfeld means Stone Field. I was looking for a name that truly meant something to me and something easy to remember. I'm sure there is a stone field out there somewhere on the prairies. I just haven't found it yet.
Other notable Steinfeld's out there:
As far as I know I'm not related to any of them.
Why is there an Airplane?
My first career and passion is flying. I've been flying for over 25 years. When I'm not selling wet shaving supplies, I'm busy flying airplanes for one of Canada's major airlines. While I'm not the first wet shaving store or even wet shaving online store, I am changing the way people look at wet shaving. I'm showing people the value in supporting Canadian artisans, I'm showing how we can use repurposed materials to make great products. I'm providing people with great customer service. The airplane featured is a Beaver- a pioneer in Canadian aviation. My hope is that my company will be a pioneer in wet shaving products.
What do You Sell?
Our focus is men's wet shaving products such as razors, brushes, shaving soaps and creams. We're always looking for great products. Many of our products are made right here in Canada. These products appear in their respective categories such as brushes or razors. They also appear in a unique category called Canadiana. We also have a collection for women. Be sure to check out our For Her collection.
If you don't see something, please let me know. Many of our great collections grew because of input from our customers.
How do we decide what we carry?
We're always looking for great products. First and foremost, we love to support local artisans and Canadian companies. We're proud of the products that are available in Canada. Most people are surprised to learn that some of the finest brushes, razors and soaps are made right here. We have a lot of talented artisans out there and we love to support them.
Secondly, we love to talk to our customers. Our customers know what they like and we listen to them. If there's a product out there and you think we should carry it, we want to hear from you. We can't carry every product out there, but we'll always do our best to find the right products for you.
Finally, I enjoy carrying products that I have used. Many of the products I sell are products that I have used personally. I want to share them with you.
Do You Sell Products for Women?
Yes. Women can also enjoy the ritual of wet shaving with our great collection of wet shaving products. We've taken this chore and turned it into a ritual. We've created a special section just for her. Visit our For Her collection. Many of the products such as the soaps were made especially just for her.
How Do I Smell This Stuff?
Well, by stuff, you must mean our amazing soaps, creams and balms. That's a great question! If you know a way to smell products online or you have developed this technology, let me know! Seriously though, when we add our product descriptions, we use the artisan's description as well as our own to try and help you understand the aroma or scent. It's no easy task and every one has different tastes and sensitivities. If the description is not adequate, please let me know, I can try and provide more detailed descriptions for you.
There are So Many Scents Out There- How Do I Decide?
How do I decide?
Choosing the right scent can be really challenging. Some of the questions you might ask yourself are:
1) Do I like earthy notes? Lavender, though often thought of as floral, does have an earthy note to it.
2) Do I like woody type scents? Sandalwood and cedar wood are classic scents
3) Do I like citrus notes? Lemon or Lime.
4) Do I like classic fragrances? These often take some of the notes above and are blended with other oils or fragrances. These would be similar to cologne scents with multiple notes.
5) Tobacco scents are very popular. Don't worry- you won't be disappointed.
If you're trying to find a gift for someone, often you can't go wrong with a scent. Consider a popular scent versus something really unusual.
If in doubt, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
