Recently I have been seeing a lot of posts regarding razors not quite being “shave-ready” from reputable honers.
I felt the same way when I started. Some time later I realized that “I” was the actually problem. Besides a lack of experience with shaving technique I was improperly stropping my razors thus creating the dreaded “rolled edge” . My razors never had a chance to be successful.
I created a video with a known trick you can do with a hanging strop to help prevent any rolled edges. Although I highly recommend a bench strop for most beginners (and everyone for that matter) this technique works and will save you some cash.
Happy Shaving !!!
