I'm new to this and have tried stropping my blades with Larry's poor man strop kit without luck. Whenever I strop hanging leather, it dulls the blade (doesn't pass the HHT). But when I use paper wrapped around balsa, I'm able to pass the HHT. I'm not sure if it's the strop or if it's my technique. Should I look at a nicer hanging strop or should I look at a leather paddle strop, or stick with newspaper? Perhaps the strop I have just needs to be broken in more?
