Sorry i haven't been posting lately. Been in a flair up with my medical issues. Haven't been too active on any forum. I really f*****g hate these med issues. Been dealing with this s**t since 2000 when I was 18. I wish i could just be normal for once. I received a new strop today. I was so excited to see it for sale. The strop is from Bakersfield Barber Supply in Bakersfield CA. It is a vintage strop and the company is no longer around. My whole family was born and raised in Bakersfield, and I still live in bako. The strop is in great shape and I haven't even cleaned the leather. It's a russian shell. The stop is back home. Now I need to get my hands on a razor from Bakersfield Barber Supply.
