2 1/2" Steerhide Leather "Plain Vanilla" Strop


Available Now

A Great "Plain Vanilla" Strop For The Straight Shaver On A Budget

I call this the "Plain Vanilla" strop as it is a basic, no frills, get the job done tool. Great leather, great workmanship, just not fancy.

The front 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" Dee Ring model comes with a second component of fine weave, firm cotton, or optional Genuine Flax Linen (+$15.00) and dee ring grips and a snap/swivel/ring top hanger. These have a 2 1/2" by 17" stropping surface and are 24" overall. Even though an entry level strop it still features my original construction and design.

Please allow 3 to 6 business days for cutting, finishing and assembly
