    Talking New Guy from california

    Just got myself my first razor less than a week ago after staring at it online for over a year (Bokers aint cheap) 4/8" with bone scales think im going to enjoy it after i figure it out ....ive learned so far that shave oil is the devil himself incarnate that turns a razor into some kind of sticky face magnet and that i may need a wider strop but all in all i love it, it's something that takes time that's not "california fast" and is worth mastering


    P.S. i managed to nick it somehow i'm guessing my strop since it wasn't dropped and has been religiously guarded since it arrived. and by nicked i mean a nearly microscopic one that i only noticed because of the 1600 lumen bulb i just put in my bathroom lol. is it possible to strop it out or will it need honing?
