You might look at our Herold strops and think, hey that looks like another brand. And you'd be correct. Herold is a German manufacturer that makes some of the best strops in the world for other brands, one of them being one the most famous in the wet shaving industry. We buy direct from the factory, which allows us to offer an incredible deal on these top of the line hanging strops for straight razors. We offer them in three leather options, including Russian leather, cowhide, and oil-tanned Russian leather, the latter being a very interesting and rare option. Take a look at the pastes, as well, and compare - you'll see an incredible value.
