Limited Edition 2 1/2" Heirloom Artisan Premium Steerhide


Available Now

Limited Edition Of Just 8 Pieces w/ Vintage Hardware

This is a Limited Edition version of my Old No. 2 Premium Steerhide strop. It features vintage T-Handle hardware, my newest 5 to 7oz. Artisan Old No. 2™ Specially Finished Premium Steerhide, Notovan Horsehide trim and Genuine Flax Linen. I only have enough hardware to make 8 strops and each is numbered.

The front component is a medium weight, firm 5 to 7 oz. premium Steerhide that has been specially finished to a superfine semi-matt finish to give a nice medium 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 2 1/2" traditional model is joined at the top to a second component of my Genuine Flax Linen

These feature vintage T- handle grips from Europe held by my Notovan Horsehide trim pieces. It is 24" in overall length and has a 2 1/2" wide x 17 1/2" long stropping surface. All strop edges are back beveled, rounded, and beaded. The trim pieces are also rounded and burnished for a uniform appearance. 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 11 years ago.

This is a limited run of just 8 pieces and each is numbered on the lower Notovan end cap and numbers run from one to 8 starting with the first piece ordered

These are made to order so please allow 3 to 5 days for me to complete your order.
