    Cool StropTober: Beginning Oct 1st 2012

    In the spirit of the JaNorton thread, we are going to try and create another resource here on SRP of stropping Techniques and Information..

    We are asking for all levels of SRP Members from Brand Spanking New shavers, to Grizzled Veterans to please sign up, and be willing to submit 1 or more Stropping videos to this thread...

    For one month we will compile all the vids, and all the posts into a resource for everyone here on SRP to have...

    Linen,(any fabric) Leather, and Pastes are welcome, basically how you use the strops,, Don't be shy this can help perfect your stropping just by the fact you are paying more attention while you are doing the Vid

    One hint to Stropping Vids, Slow Down, hehehe I have tried to do them in the past and as you start to speed up, the cameras get lost and just show a stuttering blur


    If you are willing to help out, just post here, and I will update the list between today and Oct 1st... I will leave this thread stickied at the top of this forum at least until Nov 1st

    Nice. This sounds like something I can do.

    Count me in. This sounds like it could be very instructional.

    I'll try to give it a go. No guarantees, but I think I can figure out how to make a video...

    I don't have a video camera, but this sounds like a great plan. All I have is a basic Leather strop with felt and it's time for a new one.
    I nicked mine 5-6 times in one day, and it's beyond repair. So maybe I'll hold off until this is all done, to make a more informed choice on a strop, leather and the different mediums used to achieve a keen edge. I could take a picture of my strop to show what not to do....if that helps?

    I'll try anything once...twice if it's fun. Got a camera that is supposed to take HD video, we'll see.

    Just like JaNorton not everyone did Vids many just wrote up exactly what they were doing each day, included Pics, etc:

    The more info we complie here that better the thread becomes so please join right in, also if you could take pics of how you fixed the strop that would also help out
