    Default I may have a SAD problem

    So i finally got to restore some old strops. About a week ago i was thinking, ya know you should look for a Russian strop. So ebay i went. I had a few old ones i was working on. Since i was getting close to finishing them i thought i should post a pic. Well thats when i started counting, then looked around in my closet and was like, oh there is another strop, and another, and another. One of the ones i found was a Russian strop. So now i have 2. I told my GF i think i have 12 strops. She was like thats it? I thought you would have one for each shave of the year. I was like omg you are a genius..... So im not sure if that was a challenge or just shock i really didnt have one for every shave. Either way she is a keeper.

    Well if you ever want to get rid of one send me pm and I might buy. I have a SRD premium IV strop but would be down to add a second strop to my arsenal

    Well I'm only going to suggest you ponder the definition of a problem. Nice bunch of strops.

    I dont see a problem yet. There is still room for more. The problem starts when you dont ha e room to hang them. Nice grouping!

    Nice collection of strops. You make me feel better about all my strops. I'll show my wife... See? It's not that weird.

    Actually, she even contributed one to my collection last Christmas, and a Kanayama at that! She's a keeper too.

    ...this is just telling me you have not found THE ONE yet...sure one can justify using a strop progression, or even a pasted strop...but these are way more then you need.

    I would sugest spending more time with each of them and narowing it down to the 1-2 strops you love based on the drag...feedback and result they yeld on your favorite razors...once you narowed it down to 1-2 strops.... let other ppl enjoy the rest of them...they all look like fine strops from here.

    You then can just use the money you make selling the rest to invest in a newer better strop..like a kanoyama or a custom made cordovan one for special ocasions.

    The posibilities are endless.
