Generally, it is dangerous razors that straighten on leather. To straighten knives use such a tool as a mussat. "Straightening" means not cutting chips, so a mussat must be made of steel (as hard as a knife). And if the mussat is diamond or ceramic, it is a sharpening tool and that is another issue !
