2 1/2" and 3" Fast Bridle Leather "Plain Chocolate" Strops
2 1/2" or 3" PLAIN "CHOCOLATE" FAST BRIDLE ~ MEDIUM / LIGHT DRAW
A Great "Plain Vanilla" Strop For The Straight Shaver On A Budget
I call this the "Plain Chocolate" strop as it is a chocolate colored version of my "Plain Vanilla", a basic, no frills, get the job done tool. Great leather, great workmanship, just not fancy.
The front component is a flexible 8 to 9oz. Fast Bridle Leather that has a nice light draw. While this is the same type of leather I would use for my Artisan line of strops, unlike those which demand perfect leather, these pieces are a little short of perfect and are comparable to much I what I have seen on the market. They may have some very slight natural range marks typical in all hides that will have no effect on stropping and little 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" or 3" Dee Ring model comes with a second component of fine weave, firm cotton and dee ring grips and a snap/swivel/ring top hanger. These have a 2 1/2" or 3" by 17" stropping surface and are 24" overall. Even though an entry level strop it still features my original construction and design.
