If you want the edge on your straight razor to stay blazing sharp for a long time, you need a strop with both canvas and leather. Dovo makes some of the best strops around. The canvas has a nice balance between stiffness and smoothness, and their leather is sanded to a soft finish. About 1.75” wide stropping surface.

About Dovo: Dating back to 1906, founded by Herren Dorp and Voos, Dovo’s roots began as a straight razor manufacturer in the city of Solingen, Germany. Expanding later into scissors and grooming tools through the mid 20th century, their straight razor production went from 8000 per year to 3000 per month with resurgence in wet shaving. In 1996 Dovo acquired Merkur to round out their offerings to include safety razors, providing discerning folk with all manner of “meisterwerke en stahl”, or “masterpieces in steel”.
