    Default Is this still okay to use?



    I nicked my stop and I was just curious if I can still use it.

    If it doesn't protrude, no harm. If there is a little flap of leather you may wish to glue it back in place or finish cutting it out.

    It's fine as long as you strop properly... and if you don't strop properly, well it's still not doing any harm. :P

    You can use the pumice stone the missus shines her legs with to smooth out the edges of the cut. I guess most of us even after a few years will occasionally nick a strop. Super glue is good to reset a flap if it is still partly attached. In answer to your question, yes your strop is still ok.

    Good luck
