At Edward’s we want you to get the best out of a razor, some companies will sell you a straight razor under false pretenses. You will need a strop. We have a reasonably prized strop, that It half canvas. So you can employ our trusted technique.
For stropping In a traditional shaving sense, I recommend stropping 8 on canvas then 8 on leather and repeat. On a tight strop do not twist the blade to make a cool noise, you aren’t In a western.
