Cordovan strop should hand up the clip side on the wall, and the other side should hold on tight with fingers to make straight the strop without curving the strop. To have great result of razor stropping is to make straight the razor strop during the stropping the razor. Great thing about paddle board strop is no worry about having tension on the strop. It is attached on straight board, so it is easy to manage the stropping, and the board is flexible, so it accepts the too much force if we made it.
The top side of finest Cordovan strop is about 2-3mm thick, and the bottom side of Suede strop is about 3-4mm thick that is lower grit than the top side of finest Cordovan. The sudede side is able to use before starting the finest Cordovan, or we are able to use it as we need it. It is much useful than canvas strop, because it is much higher grit than canvas strop.
****** Cleaning and maintenance Kanoyama Cordovan Razor Strop:
What we should do is to use clean cotton towel soaking in lukewarm water, and it should be not too much wet, but not too dry the towel. And then, we wipe the strop the front side of the strop until little before the lukewarm water going through all the way to the back side, and then it makes dry naturally. That is the way what we make the strop making shinny and smoother. According to Mr. Naomi, we should not apply on any oil on Cordovan strop. The oil collects dust, and it makes losing smoothness on the Cordovan strop, and it makes not as the finishing quality strop anymore. *******
