1 The World of Razor Sharpeners by Tom Willard

2 STROPPERS There are approximately 2000 known razor sharpeners/stroppers, not including leather strops, leather strops with handles and straight razor hones. These range from using leather, glass, steel, bakelite and etc. to magnetic fields. Types range from simple blade holders to complicated mechanical devices to magnets and may be manual or electric. or The first patents found are as follows: 1839 – Strop with a handle 1877 – Cylindrical rollers 1902 – Magnetism

3 Stropping Microscopically, razor blades have minute teeth like a saw blade. Dull blades have projections to these teeth that cause pulling, when hair enters the spaces between the teeth. Stropping a blade realigns these teeth by drawing the projections back into line.

4 Honing Honing a blade with a 4,000 or 8,000 grit hone removes the teeth completely. New teeth must be developed using a 12,000 grit hone or a leather strop.
