Razor strops not only work to sharpen the blade of a straight razor, they also polish the material and work to re-align parts of the blade that may have been bent out of alignment. Due to this exceptional level of functionality, any good quality shaving strop is an excellent investment for those looking to give their straight razor that extra level of care and attention.
Due to the fact straight razors are the thinnest blades in everyday use, they will require frequent stropping in order to maintain their quality. This means that any razor strop will need to be made with top quality materials in order to withstand the test of time. The jointed ends on this strop are well stitched in place through the leather bindings, meaning this is designed to be a long-lasting product.
The strop is double sided. One side is crafted with smooth leather and one side with rough leather.
For best results, hang your strop on a hook and pull towards yourself using the handle provided. Hold the razor at the part between the blade and the handle, using just your fingertips. Lay the blade flat on the strop and gently push and pull the razor along the strop approximately 4-5 times. Once complete, the razor should be sharp and ready to achieve optimum results again during shaving.
This product benefits from the use of Dovo Leather Strop Balm 50ml to ensure the longevity of the leather.
- A great strop for the price.
It's a good strop for beginners especially, since it's not a huge investment in case you cut it with your knife. A great way to get started. I still use mine often and I bought it over a year ago. Still in great shape.
