    Something special for April 1st! (A little April Fools Fun)

    An April 1st Special Edition !

    My super light draw, slightly abrasive "Premium Newsprint" Strop made from Genuine daily newspapers !

    The front component is a thin, slightly abrasive, biased and often inaccurate (sometimes even objectionable) selection from the local newspaper. It gives a very light and fast draw but with the pigment used in the ink giving a bonus polishing effect to your razors edge. Since newspapers are a natural products they may have small scars and range marks from the delivery process (throwing) or small stains from breakfast coffee or donuts.

    I use only the finest local papers to produce these strops. I try to avoid segments with inaccurate stories, any content at the gutter or below the fold. The standard strop typically consists of the editorial pages but you can request the sports or real estate sections as options. These are available delivered in either morning or evening editions to suit your shave schedule or an optional special Sunday edition featuring the funny pages (+$1.00)

    Please note that I use only hand selected pages from the finest newspapers of a major city to ensure the best quality. Do not confuse these strops with similar looking but vastly inferior copies or clones made from cheap convienence store tabloids.

    It take more time to do this detail work but is the only proper way to make a quality product.

    Thank you for joining along in a little APRIL FOOLS fun !

    (While this is not a real product I am offering many have found that newspaper does make a very effective strop as the inks used are slightly abrasive and can indeed enhance an edge)

    The Difference Is In The Details

    Tony very good play for the day, the funny thing is though I have used folded newspaper on travel and it’s worked pretty well keeping my razor going

    It is very effective and I have used it myself so wanted to have a little fun with that concept. Maybe we can do a pass around on one of these !

    I love your strops, but I prefer the 3" wide ones. Is there any consideration of producing your premium newsprint strops in 3" width?

    If not this year, how about April 1, 2020?

    Well, for sure, the only missing component to these highly prized strops would be a Rizenfield strop sock made form the finest t-paper and paper towels available. No need to wash them when soiled. Just flush them. They will come with assorted kitchen prints when available and are priced to sell - $35 per 100. Happy first of the fourth!
