    No it's just a single component leather strop.

    FR stands for French razor? Or framebacks?

    I'll take pictures when I make the next one (which should look better), I'll shoot both together so you can see the difference.

    That is a great blade! Funny how their razors are awesome, but the knives...well, I'm glad they did razors.

    I was thinking about the benefits of a linen and a leather side on a strop, just last night. A linen side is not really necessary, but is almost like "hone-ping". It's a way to not need the stones for even longer, but more importantly, it gives you that option of customization of your edge. Technically, you could charge the rougher side of a strop and use it in a similar manner, depending on the type of leather, and never need linen. BUT, given the choice, and the pure luxurious-ness (look and feel) of a true two sided strop...well we all know which our eyes and razors would fall upon.
