    Default "drag" on leather strop...

    I've read about the so-called "drag" you should get when using a leather strop.

    Can somebody describe this more thoroughly? When I use my strop (just a cheap one), it just feels smooth - no "pull" at all.

    I did condition it with what the guy gave me (feels like vaseline?).

    razors shave great, though. I don't have any problems with sharpness (so far).

    Sounds like it's working like it should.

    Drag is usualy accomplished by conditioner or a rougher finish.

    Don't worry about it.
