I am hoping some of you straight razor users can recommend a good strop that won't break the bank. I have been using a straight for about a year with good results and have been stropping on a vintage piece of leather with various nics and tears in it, and a paddle strop with CO.

I cannot help but to think my shaves may be even better if I had an appropriate strop.

What are you using for your straights, and would you recommend it?

Love my Roo strop from SRD not much drag but gives me perfect result everytime, the nylon side works good to.. - is the thickness of the Rooskin its very thin. http://www.straightrazordesigns.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=36&products_id=1435


or topnotch but also a high price.

I use the 3 1/4 in OVB from star shaving. I like the feel and love the width :) Not very expensive either. I'd like to try roo someday as well.

This is the one I have . http://www.classicshaving.com/american- ... rings.html
It's nice but if I were to buy another I'd get the roo one Magnus linked to above . That's a pretty decent price for that.

I also prefer nanocloth and 'roo strops. I find the bench strops more versatile for both knives and razors. Available on CKTG in sizes from 3x11 to 1x6" in size. I keep a 1x6" roo strop for touchups in my medicine cabinet with some 0.025 micron poly and use it right before shaving while the water is heating up.

I have a Tony Miller Steer hide. It is a no frills model. Leather and linen, no d-rings or handle. It works for my razors. It was inexpensive but looked a lot better than the whipped dog poor man's strop I learned on.
