    Angry Can if find just a Cotton/linen strop without the leather?

    Hey ya'll!

    I've been loving my Straight Razor Design 2" Red Latigo Strop; But with using pastes I think it would be easier for me if I had 2 separate strops. One cotton/linen and one leather. Are there strops out there that are just cotton/linen? I've been looking and I haven't found any yet...

    Thanks!!!

    If Primarily used with pasted strops Oh Yea! Not bad either for a choice to go with before the leather.

    I've been considering buying one for myself/until the windshield got broken!

    I tried in my previous answer to say that the Superior Shave has some.

    Using a separate strop for paste is easier and cleaner. I use separate pasted strop, I do a lot of paste experimenting.

    My leather strop has leather and clean linen.

    Really you do not need a lot of different paste, for most Chrome Oxide is the only paste you need.

    These are just a few.

    I'm glad other people do this! I wasn't sure lol but while using my diamond paste I always think...this would be a heck of a lot easier if my strop was separated!
