Horsehide is a must for those serious about their straight razor. The texture of horsehide offers better "draw", meaning it grabs the edge of the razor and straightens it more effectively, allowing your razor to stay sharp longer.
A strop is a must for your blade. By stropping properly on a regular basis, you can avoid sharpening your razor as often and help it last longer. Sorta like brushing your teeth often to help you avoid the dentist. Ezra Arthur strops are extremely solid and designed to have the leather or canvas portion easily replaceable in the event of a stropping disaster.
Strops can get dry, so be sure to moisturize it a couple times a year with leather cream.
This strop is two-sided. Use the rougher side, followed by the smoother side
Available in 2.5-inch and 3-inch widths, 18 inches length.
Made in the USA.
