    Default Strops better than hones, TOP 10

    Why I think learning to use a strop is more important than learning to use a hone:

    10. You can get a dull razor to shave with good stropping, but you can't hone a razor smooth enough to be able to shave

    9. You never hear anybody say "I over stropped again"

    8. You can always put paste on a strop

    7. You can send your razor out to be honed, but you can't send it out to be stropped

    6. You don't have to soak a strop in order for it to work

    5. You can't tie a hone up in the bathroom

    4. You can't snap a hone and make the kids clean their room.

    3. You can't get a cat to chase a dangling hone into a wall, but a strop does the job really well.

    2. You can't dry your back with a hone, but the linen side of a strop finally has a use now.

    1. A strop in the bedroom makes you look like a frisky stud, a hone in the bedroom makes you look like a woodworker.

    Also, you can't slice a hone in two when learning to hone a razor...

    10. Just because you can't doesn't mean Lynn can't
    9. Oh yes I have ... ME

    7. True
    6. Or a barber hone

    Alan,

    I must have read that 20 times before I caught it...nicely done!

    Will you be touring all of the usual comedy clubs, or just certain one?

    It said you don't have to soak a hone before use. It now says strop.
