3" Heirloom Artisan Premium Steerhide Strop


Available Now

My 8 to 9 oz. Artisan Old No. 2™ Specially Finished Premium Premium Leather is available with my Fast Bridle leather trim and Dee Rings or Handles.

The front component is a medium/heavy 8 to 9 oz. Premium Steerhide leather that has been specially finished to provide a fast, light draw. It is buttery smooth with a velvet-like draw and needs no breaking in. It is hand worked to give just the right suppleness and to help it resist cupping.

This 3" traditional model is joined at the top to a second component of my heavy weight, medium weave cotton with its own Dee Ring or Handle grip at the bottom. (Genuine Linen is no longer available on my 3" strops)

These feature either Dee Ring Grips (Standard) or my optional Heavy 3-Ply Leather Handles (+$14.00)with a 29" overall length and a 3" wide x 17 1/2" long stropping surface. All strop edges are back beveled, rounded, and beaded. The handles and trim pieces are also rounded, back beveled and burnished for a uniform appearance. The handles feature a third layer in the center to add stiffness and increase durability. It takes more time to do this detail work but is the only proper way to make a quality product. And of course all of my strops feature Chicago Screw construction making them modular for easy component replacement should it be needed. This now popular modular construction and this handle design that you see from other makers was an Heirloom Razor Strop innovation over 8 years ago.

These are made to order so please allow 3 to 4 business days for cutting, finishing and assembly.
