Lost in the world of wet shaving? Spinning with the razors, blades, creams, soaps, pastes, and equipment you need? Well, you are not alone -- and boy, its fun, isn't it? If you've gone to the straight blade and need a good strop to keep it working well, then take a look at Herold. These strops are made by Kohl & Laibach out of Solingen, Germany - true quality and craftsmanship.
Herold 84j paddle strop is great for the newly initiated into "cut-throat" shaving. A strop is a flexible piece of leather used to straighten and polish a blade before use. Unlike sharpening or honing, stropping doesn't take any material away so it lengthens the life of your blade by providing a working edge for a longer period of time.
This double-sided strop has natural leather on both sides and a wooden handle for a secure grip. It is Russian leather, a bark-tanned cowhide that is tanned and rubbed with birch oil on the rear face that makes it particularly hard-wearing, flexible, resistant to water and even insect repellent.
The advantages of a paddle strop are a taut surface (excellent for beginners), compact size (usually easier for travel), and convenience of use (you aren't attached to surface like with a hanging strop).
