This Herold Solingen leather strop is made from high-quality ‘Russian’ leather. The metal ring can be hung easily on a hook or door handle. You can hold on to the other end and keep the strop as tight as you need for the stropping.
With repeated use the blade of any razor gets dull, your straight razor is not ready for use until it’s stropped. Stropping smoothes out any rough edges and realigns the blade, it removes the microscopic nicks and burrs even though you might not be able to see them.
How to use:
Pull the strop taut and using light pressure run the blade horizontally up the leather surface with the blade flat against the leather. Once at the end flip over the blade and run horizontally back down the strop.
