This Straight Razor Strop is made of top quality leather to provide years of razor sharpening perfection.
What makes stropping such an important part of straight razor maintenance is that the strop straightens the indentations and imperfections left by shaving without removing any material from your blade.
This strop has a paddle handle for easy management of the strop angle, is 19 inches long and 1.5 inches wide.
Two points are key to stropping:
Draw the blade spine-first along the strop. By contrast, honing is done edge-first.
Rotate the blade along the spine, so the edge moves away from the strop and faces you, and the spine rests on the strop. This preserves the edge – if the blade is rotated on the edge (facing away from you), this will roll the blade, defeating the purpose of stropping.
