    How To Use a Pasted Balsa Strop

    Where can I find acrylic plates? The ones on eBay aren’t super thick. https://www.ebay.com/itm/392901997998?hash=item5b7ac8b5ae:g:qyAAAOxyaRZR3XMP

    How To Use a Pasted Balsa Strop

    Found some! I saw on your YouTube video you suggested holding up the strop block flat. Wouldn’t be better to shape this into something like a paddle strop? It’d be easier to hold. Also does 0.25 thick need backing? Can I use the whole piece as a strop and not cutting it?

    How To Use a Pasted Balsa Strop

    Understood. I pasted suede blocks for my knives. Is balsa more appropriate for razors?

    How To Use a Pasted Balsa Strop

    Can I use basswood instead of balsa? Is there a difference between two? I checked our local michaels all they have is basswood.

    Is Dovo "Classic" 5/8” any good?

    This is excellent info thanks a bunch! Is 12000 too fine for setting the bevel?

    Is Dovo "Classic" 5/8” any good?

    It’s definitely not shave ready. I tried it this morning, I have to use so much pressure I’m afraid I’m gonna cut myself. My shavette with derby blades put this to shame.

    Is Dovo "Classic" 5/8” any good?

    Can I hone it with 12000 or should I start with a higher grit? Do you think pasted strop would help?

    Is Dovo "Classic" 5/8” any good?

    I got one of the WS bokers. I love the 4/8” size but the blade is rather dull. I have to use pressure to cut which makes it uncomfortable. The tip is also very toothy.

    Straight razor - set up to last a lifetime (or maybe a long time).

    Where can I find more information on Balsa progression?

    Thiers-Issard or Ralf Aust?

    I'm trying to decide between these exact two razors. Do you still have both of them? Which one do you like the most? Does round tip work ok for trimming and detail work?

    Iwasaki Kamisori

    Does Iwasaki still make kamisori? I heard rumors he has retired 2 years ago and all razors are now made by Mizuochi.
