well here is my problem, i have 2 straights honed (could be better) but i dont want to shave with them unless i can maintain there edge. i dont have a huge budget on my straights (as i am a DE at heart) so i am in need of a strop which has a good rep with a linen side also. something where i can get my technique down but not have to be worried about cuping or cracking. idk about the paddle strops but if there reputation is good enough i will consider. any help would be appreciated .
