Can I use a newspaper to strop until I get a real one?
I am thinking of starting straight shaving and am wondering if I can use a newspaper until I can afford a nice strop. Right now I can only afford the razor and to have it professionally honed.So it would be nice if I can get by with a newspaper for now.
