I think we need way more information.Hi everyone I am trying to get into straight razors I’m done everything I know how bit I never know how much to hone, to strop or anything like that, I always seem to get a pulling sensation form my dovo. Also my strop has a few nicks is it still of to use?
Spare yourself any further distress and send your razor to someone here who will put a reference edge on it. That way you will know what you are shooting at.
Everyone's first strop has a nick or two...
Where are you located?
