Total newb here to stropping, semi-newb to general sharpening. Got a little strop kit online, watched some videos and applied the compound like coloring with a crayon (only came with 1 green compound) to the smoother side, as I don't use my knives hard enough ATM that their edges are "dull". Also, wanted to minimize risk of messing up any edges with my first go around. Here's some pics. Can an experienced "stropper" comment if I used too compound? Or any other criticisms on how I applied it?
