Just bought my first straight.
It's a S.R. Droescher Classic as shown:
Once received, I am sending it out to be honed.
I am a total newbie, I don't plan on using it much, maybe once every week or two.
My concern is maintaining the edge by stropping.
Can I use what I have described below to strop my razor?
What I have are the 3x11 strops with the magnetic backs that Mark sells here. I use them to strop my knives.
I have Felt, Balsa, Cow Leather, and Horse butt leather.
These all seem similar to a paddle strop, so can I use these for stropping the razor?
I have Green buffing compound, that is chromium oxide right?
Also have 1 micron diamond spray, and alumina suspension.
Can I get the job done with what I have. Or should I consider buying a traditional hanging strop with leather and linen?
