Horsehide is probably the most traditional stropping surface, and for good reason. This beautiful heirloom quality strop features a full 3" of stropping surface so you don't have to worry about making "X strokes", and is made from Horween horsehide. The second surface is a really nice natural flax linen webbing from England that helps you clean and prepare your straight razor for stropping. Each of these pieces measure 18" long and come fastened to handmade leather handles in an elegant walnut Italian leather with a very unique and luxurious surface texture. The handles are assembled using the traditional saddle stitch and the edges are beveled and slicked smooth to feel great in the hand.
Why horsehide? Horsehide has been prized by knowledgeable wetshavers for hundreds of years due to its dense grain structure, medium draw, and durability. It will keep your prized straight razor in tip top shape and help you avoid uncomfortable tugging associated with inferior strops.
Both the leather and the linen material are fitted with solid brass hardware and can be fully disassembled. If you happen to damage your strop you will then have the option to remove the screws and replace the leather material or change out the linen.
If you are looking for an heirloom quality razor strop at a great price, then look no further.
