Stropper Use
Some of us have old non-standard razors that we would like to try. Old blades are, at best, dull. A stropper of some type in needed. This is only one type of the myriads of them designed. It aligns the blade and grips it firmly to hone or strop. I use the sides of hones to hone with this stropper. One edge at a time. It works well for some of the other narrow single edge blades also
With a “SEGAL” blade

This is one of the most practical stroppers I have seen so far. Much less bulky vs the Twinplex stroppers and such as well.

They are often found in antique stores as most shavers have no idea what they are! They often show on the 'bay also for little money.
