paddle strop question

  1. after how many shaves should i strop my razor on a pasted stop. and how many microns should i use. (my paddle has 3.0, 1.0, .5)

    thanks.
     
  2. There's no set # of shaves. Do it when the razor isn't sharp enough, and try the lowest grit first (which would be 0.5 for you) and see if that does it.

    If you do wind up using multiple sides, make sure to wipe the blade thoroughly on a paper towel between sides, to avoid contaminating the finer sides with grit from the coarse ones.
     
  3. Thanks for the tips
     
  4. Lamazza,
    From the grit sizes it sounds like one of mine. If you send me an e-mail via my store I can send another copy of my instructions for you or PM me with your e-mail address.
