I did nick those at first, but wish I had known more about strops and gotten a more expensive one. You can take your time, watch videos and be careful and just sand out nicks, if necessary on an expensive one. My favorite strop is the Walkin' Horse horsebutt 3 inch wide strop.

You have several options on restorers. Myself and several other people restore straight razors.
If you want advice on how to restore it, I can give you some info on that.

Not in league with the guy behind SS, but honestly, I am unable to produce or find a better value. Unless you make your own.

Thank you Obie for the great video, I will be watching it (and others) multiple times in the coming weeks before I jump into this.

The Star Shaving Big Daddy is a very good strop for the money. You can get it directly from Star Shaving, or on eBay. This was my first strop and will work as well on your edge as more expensive strops.
