I have a used antique strop but haven't used it yet. I wanted to know what needs to be done to a strop to condition it if it hasn't been used in a while. Also it smells a little. I think it is just old leather and possibly had some sort of conditioner applied to it in the past and now has a musty smell. It has a leather strop and a canvas srop that has more texture to it and doesn't look like leather. I am getting set up to use a straight and see if I like straight shaving but I need to know if I should do anything to prep the strop, or at least to get rid of the smell.
