This fine strop offers more width to your razor, lending you ample surface area to sharpen more of your blade at once.

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.
