    Default Strop for Multi-Blade Razors?

    Just wonder if anyone knew of any strops for multi-blade razors like Mach 3 or Phantom Fusion?

    If not, is there some way a regular straight razor strop can get the job done?

    Last, if you've done this before how many shave can you get out of the blades before they're no good?

    I know this is an odd question, (especially with many DE users here , sorry!) but any info would be helpful, thanks!

    Cartridges are not designed to be stropped, although there are devices out there (ala snake oil) that supposedly do. The problem is that they only rub against one side of the blade.

    IIRC not all the blades are at the exact angle so it can achieve the pull and hack method of cutting. That would negate any stropping also.

    This has my curiousity. Doesn't claim to strop and the testimonials are quite good.

    what a bizarre picture. anyone that thinks that they will be able to go six months on one cartridge is not thinking clearly.
