Hello all,

For all of you DIY people who also use straights - http://straightrazorplace.com/strops/102430-homemade-hanging-denim-strop.html

Was looking at a leather strop for fairly cheap on a knife supply site. I asked about it and was told to try using denim. When I searched the forum I found the above thread. Looks worth trying.

you can also get a stick of jewelers rouge and make your own leather strop. I used a piece of scrap leather and made one for my tooling knife. It's about $5 on ebay last I looked. I also use this strop to get more use out of my razor blades.

Hmm, I should repurpose a pair of old jeans into a sweet strop, I have scrap leather, the eyelets and tool, loop the denim around a piece of copper tube from my scrap bin, stitch and secure with a bit of knotted parachute chord.

Brilliant idea for sure, and within my price range!
