Razor Strops & Hones

Straight razors are the the pinnacle of wet shaving, but they do require some maintenance to keep them performing. A leather strop to prep the blade or a hone to keep it sharp, we have what you need when you shave the "cut-throat" way.

Before every shave, you'll want to strop on one of our leather strops. Although we have to work very hard to keep it in stock, we highly recommend the Walkin Horse horsebutt. However, Herold strops are our recommendation if you want to get something at a more economical price point. Hint: they make strops for other famous brands, but we buy direct and pass the huge savings on to you. Make sure you pick up a conditioner to keep the leather soft and to avoid cracks.


Eventually, you'll need to touch up the straight edge blade just from use or even more if you manage to damage the edge. The Norton waterstone is a great all purpose hone and will get your razor back in shaving condition. If you just need a quick edge refinement, a paddle strop with a paste is the way to go.

If you're confused, contact us and we'll walk you through the options.

Illinois Razor Strop #827 This is my first strop as many others wetshavers are prone to buy at first!

I'm very happy so far!

Illinois Razor Strop #127 This is a great strop for the price. Mine arrived with the leather a little "wrinkled" on the bottom, but there is plenty of surface area to still use. Enjoying figuring the "X" pattern out and will be up-grading to a wider strop soon. Good value.

Illinois Razor Strop #827 "I was looking for an economical replacement for the practice strop that came with my razor and this Strop more than fits the bill easy to use, not so expensive that I'm afraid to break it being a new straight razor shaver. My razor has never been smoother or sharper than since it met this strop and consequently this has led to much better shaves

Illinois Razor Strop #127 "I have no previous experience with razor strops so I cannot reasonably compare. I'm happy with the quality of this strop and it's a nice useable length. VERY impressed with WCS customer service.
