    Cotton belts go in thrift stores for $1. They are narrow but work fine for pastes. Each belt is long enough for two strops.

    I'd suggest looking for a nearly unused vintage linen like euclid has shown (in the middle) for using without abrasive.

    You will be surprised how long a linen of that type will maintain a razor if you use it once a week.

    They should be free of loading, and have some sort of trademark on them like "fine weave" or "silk finish".
