Great strop

I use it for finishing my knives & the extra width really helps with consistency.
Well made with quality leather I’m sure it will outlast the last couple I’ve owned

Essential accessory

This was the perfect device for putting a excellent edge on your razor

High quality.

So I bought this as my first strop as I didn't want to spend $50 on a Chinese strop only to be disappointed and need to spend more later.

The leather is excellent quality and fittings are beautifully crafted. The size is excellent, wide enough to accommodate most standard razors.

Two words of warning though, this strop does not have a cotton or canvas side like many others, so if you want to use pastes or canvas to warm up then you'll need a second strop. Secondly, the leather is vegetable tanned and not dyed, this means that it retains the beautiful natural colour however it is susceptible to staining, don't be like me and touch it with a wet hand, as the water stained and discolored the leather.

Worth it

Having to shave every working day, I decided to spend up and invest in this strop. I am glad I did!
Definately worth your coin if you care about your straight razor and getting a good shave.

Exceptional Strop

Being used to a heavy draw black latigo strop, I really did have enough of it. I felt it rounded the edge much more than this Dovo 80,mm wide softer and more comfortable to use. Be aware however, that you still need to move the blade around the leather to avoid 'wearing a path', call it the 'occasional X stroke' This is a lovely strop, but is not a panacea for poor technique. This is a lovely strop to use, be aware though, that nothing is 'nick proof'. Enjoy this lovely smooth light draw strop. Cheers Bob
