A Great beginner Strop To Get You Started On A Budget

I call this the "Apprentice" strop as it is a basic, no frills, beginner strop on a budget to get you started with staright razors. The same great leather as my "Plain Vanilla" strops but just in a different configuration.

The single component is a medium/heavy weight 8 to 9 oz. Premium Steerhide Leather that has a nice light draw. While this is the same leather I would use for my Artisan line of strops these may have some very slight natural range marks typical in all hides that will have no effect on stropping and very little to no effect on appearance. These are well suited for someone just starting out, the "Apprentice Shaver", or the experienced shaver that values function over frills and who does not want to make a large investment but still wants a well made strop with a very nice leather. They are all made here in my shop, by me, by hand.

This 2 1/2" Traditional Barber strop has a straight cut end and extra length to act as the grip just like the old time Barber's strops did. The top features a snap/swivel/ring hanger. These are 2 1/2" wide and are 24" overall, leaving roughly 18" of stropping surface clear of the hand hold area. available as a single component, leather only strop for those on a tight budget, or with an optional second component of firm, fine weave cotton (+$8.00). Even though an entry level strop it still features my original construction and design.
