    One word of the original post jumps out at me.....pressure. Never use pressure for shaving or stropping.

    The only time pressure should be used, is by very experienced blade honers that are trying to make a correction on an edge.

    If, as you say, you have deployed pressure while stropping, the edge is most assuredly distorted.

    So I finally got the chance to meet my mentor, and he showed me how little pressure was needed for stropping. So that's one thing clarified!

    So I'm now being much gentler with my razor, and I'm waiting for a good hanging strop's delivery

    Thanks again everybody.

    I saw that video and still did it wrong - Some people don't learn as fast as others

    I bet with a couple of hours practice you'll get it.
