2" Artisan Companion Travel Strop

ARTISAN™ OILED BRUSHED COWHIDE COMPANION TRAVEL STROP ~ MEDIUM DRAW

Available Aug. 28th


My 4oz. Artisan Companion™ Cowhide, Medium Draw Travel Strop comes in its own storage can that packs safely for travel. Available in single leather, or leather and cotton configurations with dee ring grips.

I call this the "Companion" as it is designed to travel with you on all of your journeys and vacations. The front component is a light weight 4oz. premium "Oiled and Brushed" cowhide that has been specially finished to give a medium to heavy draw surface on a leather that easily holds up to rolling tight for storage while travelling. It is hand worked to give just the right suppleness to conform to the blade but still has a tough feel. The reverse side is a more coarse, rough out leather that has a good deal of friction and pretty much takes the place of needing a cloth component.

Each strop rolls easily to fit into a sturdy metal tin for storage in your luggage or Dopp kit. The tins measure 3 3/4" x 2 1/2" for the dual leather and cotton strop, 3 1/4" x 2 1/8" for the single, leather only strop. The leather thong and bead hanger easily works on door knobs for use in your hotel room.

I offer this as a leather only travel strop which I feel is all that is needed for a week or less trip. For those that feel they need a cloth component too when away from home or travelling for an extended period I also offer this with an optional second component of soft weave cotton (+$8.00) with a second D-ring grip.

And of course all of my strops feature Chicago Screw construction making them modular for easy component replacement should it be needed. The now popular modular construction design that you see from other makers was an Heirloom Razor Strop innovation over 9 years ago.

These are made to order so please allow 4 to 6 business days for me to complete your order.
