ok, so i've been thinking about getting into straight shaving, and since i just bought a straight in BST i guess I am :) now i need to buy a strop. I've looked at the whippeddog poor mans strop and have a ponderance... poor man strop kit=$22, additional leather=$11. rich man strop kit=67 additional leather=$12
accepting the fact that I will nick my first strop, i would order with additional leather, if I order the poor man, with additional strop($22+$11)=$33 and have gotten profecient with stropping, i would want to upgrade to a better strop, so lets assume i choose the rich man as the upgrade $33+$55=$88.
if i get the rich man to begin with with 3 leathers, it's $67+2(12)=$91 so for $3 i get a much more "presentable" strop, with D rings, so less worries about cupping, etc, the same amount of strop leather(3 pieces, but 3" instead of 2")
why would the poor man be a better way to go?
