  • 3" top-grain leather strop
  • Black with leather handles
  • Nylon prep side

Looking to keep your newly purchased straight edge razor in peak form? Then you need to invest in a strop. This strip of leather is important for lengthening the life of your blade. Stropping helps to remove the microscopic nicks and burrs and aligns the edge to keep you shaving better longer! Together with a prep material, you will have a clean, sharp edge every time you ply the razor. Try out our WCS 3" Hanging Strop, Leather and Nylon, Black.

In generations past, a barber would strap his strop to his chair, so it was easily accessible. Hence, a hanging strop was designed to hang from the swivel clasp at the top and to be pulled taut to strop. The swivel allows you to flip conveniently between the prep side and the leather. This strop is comprised of top-grain black leather and stamped with the WCS logo. The leather handles are sturdy to pull the strip tight. The rivets are brass and chrome-plated. The prep strip is nylon. Use it before the leather to clean your blade of any moisture/oils/impurities so they don't transfer to your porous leather.

At a generous 3", this grooming utensil offers plenty of real estate for your blade. Make sure as you are honing your technique that you don't "roll the blade" and nick the leather. Take your time to ensure a great shave. This is a wonderful option for expert or novice alike!

Size: 3"

Little piece of awesome

Ordered this strop from WCS a couple years ago now, and I am very happy with the product overall, I have found that the 3 inch width makes x-strokes essentially unnecessary (though at some point you should probably still learn so you can use other strops.) I enjoy the fact that I have a two sided fabric, inside covered in CrOx for razor refreshing keeps my razors and hones wear down, while still giving me a cleaning side and a strop. I am a big fan of the paddle style strop, this was my first experience with one and I'm convinced that it's a great option over D rings (I still like D rings for traveling for space saving) but I would LOVE it if WCS could do us the favor of letting us know what type of leather this is, if only to keep track of how the draw compares to latigo's and English bridles etc, overall though you'll get lots of consistent use out of it, no cupping so far, and pay a very reasonable price.
