Horse is nice
Up until last week my only strop had been an Illinois 827 Russian strop. No complaints at all but last week I picked up an older 127 horse hide in excellent condition. We all need more than one strop right? I'm convinced it has improved the sharpness and smoothness of my edges. It could be that the older linen is doing a better job than the linen on the 827 but either way my shaves have been noticeably better over the last 5 days. The draw on the horse hide is very light compared to the Russian I was not really expecting much. Should there be a dramatic difference between strop materials?
