What's new

slight improved poormans strop

When I bought my first straight it was a Whipped dog sight unseen. with it I got two poorman strops. the one I've been using has served me well but I've always thought it needed a handle so I made one.

here's how I was holding it

just two small machine screws and some 550 cord. quick and dirty

Impressive! That said, is that a bidet in the background? Isn't it a violation of B&B rules to use a straight razor next to a bidet? :) :)

that it is. how ever you may notice I'm using it for my reading materials. all bathrooms here have them
 
thanks.
obviously this strop was super cheap so I didnt expect any bells and whistles, but this is what it needed. cant wait for 5 am to roll around so I can get up and use it
 
Take a bit of tubing (like a cut piece of ballpoint pen) and put that inside the leather, and the 550 cord though that. That will help keep the strop flat and prevent cupping once the leather softens with the cord pulling on the sides.
