As I was browsing the weekly flea market down the street from my house I spied an antique Howard #255 razor strop in very nice condition. It is 2 sided and has a little red compound on one side. I talked the guy down to 10 bucks and brought it home, intending to use it on my straight razor, butt I tried it on a couple of knives first. Woo-Hoo!
It brought a fairly sharp edge to very sharp in short order. I do believe that I have a new weapon in the sharpening arsenal.
