    I have already been thinking about a Gillette Psycho razor for the collection but am not so sure about getting one from the bay. There have been a few on there that i want but ive never gotten anything from there yet. I need tips on getting stuff from there. My Gf has been screwed over on the bay a couple times so that has kinda prevented me from it.

    Almost forgot can useing a nicked strop damage your blade? I had not learned how to use it yet and kinda screwed it up pretty good on both ends tward the middle.

    Welcome! Looks like you do pretty well without the bay! Nice pile! Put on a pic of the strop damage.
    Look at the Movember auctions in the BST!

    A mild nick/scratch will not really affect the blade. Post a pic and we can help you determine how bad it is. That being said, welcome to SRP! I can't wait to see what you collect when you start learning to hone .
    The older I get the more I realize how little I actually know.

    Some fine wet/dry sandpaper to smooth em out is about all you can do. Little flappers can be superglued down, but all the superglue must be sanded off. Might work well enough to work long enough to get you through the strop-nicking stage?

    Hi and welcome. I would try to sand it first. Just make sure that you get sny sanding residues off or any remaining grit can damage the blade edge. Good luck trying to save money, very few of us have.

    I know a lot about the bay. I have 3661 100% positive feedback so if you need to know anything, please feel free to ask. Another thing you could use on your strop is rubber cement because it is pliable.

    Your strop looks like a typical beginner strop. Just sand out the rough spots and put off replacing it until you stop cutting it. Unfortunately, you probably rolled the razor's edge doing the damage, so you might need to check the razor and send it out for a rehone. You can practice with a butter knife without damaging your strop.
