    Never seen a vintage 3 inch strop. Should learn the x pattern anyway its the best way to ensure the entire edge gets stropped properly

    I have a 4/8 boker. Almost shave ready when i bought it. Made around 10 passes on th 12k and stroped to bring it to full shave ready.
    Just a little tuggy when used the first time before i touched it up.
    Smooth as silk now.
    YMMV

    I personally don't use an X pattern on a 2" strop. I alternate between stropping on the heel and the toe of the blade. 10 laps heel, 10 laps toe and repeat. Same result and less likely to nick the strop. Welcome to SRP!
