I made a few strops not long ago and I just now happened to notice that one has a small but very noticeable dent in it where something in the closet where I had them hanging, poked into it. Shouldn't affect the stropping, though, and most beginners will soon have far worse damage on their first strop. I had in mind to just PIF it. Then I thought, hey why not throw in a Gold Monkey razor, stick of Arko, and a cheap gimme Chinese badger brush of doubtful pedigree, to make up a bare bones beginner setup? The razor is honed, stropped, and ready to go. I am assuming that anyone who already has a better strop, brush, and razor won't want it anyway, so it is wide open to anyone with at least 50 posts, and at least 25 in the straight razor forums. Winner will be selected at random. To be in, have the required number of posts and reply in this thread with "I'M IN!" and your post count, and you are in. Winner will be selected tomorrow (Friday) evening and I will announce the lucky winner immediately after. I will need his shipping details via PM by the time I wake up Sunday morning so I can pay and print shipping and take it to the post office Monday morning, and hopefully it will arrive in time to at least spend one night under the Christmas tree.
