    Default Stropping my shavette blade

    Always tinkering and tried stropping my feather pro guard and pro blades on my linen strop while in my shavette. To my surprise I got a really smooth shave. I stropped the blade after each shave and it extended the shave to 10. I just tried stropping on my Tony Miller strop and it is even better. I normally wouldn't bother with a DE blade but the Feather blades do take to the strops.
    Phrank and Dachsmith like this.

    I palm strop the Feather blades when I use my Mongoose, anytime I put a new one in, couple of laps on my palm and it takes the initial bite right out of them...can totally see why giving them some strop time would be effective - thanks for sharing....
