The felt seems to be working quite well for me. I have probably used it about a half dozen times.Has the felt worked out well? I already have a couple of nice cordovan strops so I am not so concerned with the leather. However if the leather is good, then so much the better
Just curious as to how the felt works in "everyday use" compared to actual canvas/linen that I have now.
That is a easy to fix..Nope... they are not the exact same length (at least on mine) so it would interfere with keeping taut and could roll an edge. A little trim of the top of the wool component and a new hole would be required to even it out. Really isn't a problem though, it was the only thing I could pick on about. .
This is the first strop I have with Dee rings or handles so I'm in the habit of only grabbing the component I'm stropping with anyway.
the same for me. I bought this last night crossing my fingers it wouldnt be a waste. great to hear!!Wow. Talk about timing. I am new to this straight razor "game" and was searching ebay for a cheap strop and literally five minutes before finding this thread, I messaged the seller about 2 versions of their strop.
Thanks for the post, you answered any question I had about picking this one up!
