I just bought my first straight, a 5/8 stamped Wapienica, and am dying to use it. But my wife is reigning in my shaving purchases for the time being, due to the holidays approaching, and has told me she will get me a nice strop for Christmas. But what do I do in the meantime? Does anybody know of any alternatives? Is there something cheap I can get in the meantime to tide me over?
Any help would be appreciated.
