    Should I attempt this? Or find a professional to sharpen?

    I sharpen all of mine on stones. Ideally you want 100% blade contact on the stone. I know people may jump in and say that partial blade contact will work and it will , just a whole lot trickier.

    I don't have experience with the Edge Pro. But if it has good stones up to 7-800 grit (not diamond) and you have a decent strop.
    It should work. DM

    No. You’ll ruin the razor with an edge pro.

    Do a lot of research on repairing, bevel setting, honing, and stropping straights.
    Then decide if you want to get the right equipment and practice technique, or send it out.
