Ambidextrous Honing and Stropping
On more than one occasion, I have heard Jarrod from The Superior Shave mention that he wished he could hone and strop in an ambidextrous way--sort of like straight-razor shaving. Certainly an ambidextrous approach would pose an advantage with regard to a more balanced wear of the razor, strop, and hone--especially the strop. But is anyone actually doing this?--and if so, what comments or advice can they provide?
Being right-handed, I personally have no problem shaving with my left hand; in fact, I do a better job with my off-hand here. But in stropping, I'm definitely right-handed. Honing poses a strange situation for me because I am left-handed when using both hands, but right-handed when only using one hand.
[Edit. To a mod: I put this in the honing forum, but perhaps it is better in the general straight razor talk section?]
