Im just getting into straight razors and just picked up my first strop. It looked good at the store and was decently priced ($40). But when I got it home I noticed it had what looked to me like a paint run going across the top of it. The run is approx 4 inches long and just barely noticible when a finger is ran across it.
My question is, since the "run" is noticible to the touch, will it affect my razor when I strop? If so, is there a way to fix it? Such as sanding or??
