To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It's not as wide, nor as long as some others, so you'll have to adopt the "X" pattern of stropping to get the most out of it. The flesh side of the leather is textured somewhat like the linen side of other strops, and 15-20 stokes on that side does a fine job of prepping the blade. The smooth side does not have a heavy draw, and to get the best edge, 40-50 light strokes make the razor ready for shaving. It's compact for traveling, and seems durable.
Wow what a difference! this thing gets my razor in shape for a shave right quick. My old strop just made a mess of my razor and I didn't have enough experience to know. This is the right strop for the job!
