Dovo "Col Ichibod Conk" 183 Russian Leather Straight Razor Strop
- Hanging razor strop
- Russian leather

Form and function, poetry and prose, delicacy and danger! As a true renaissance man, you can appreciate the paradoxes at play in the timeless shave from a "cut-throat" razor. Well, to keep your blade in tip-top shape, you need a strop. And the blade makers at Dovo have created the perfect compliment to you blade.
The Dovo 183 strop features their wonderful Russian leather, which is taken from a slice below the outer skin. It has a wonderful velvety smooth surface and is more consistent then the outer later of leather more common to lesser prices strops. This cowhide is organically tanned.The Dovo hard cotten surface is attached to both the handle and the leather, forming a loop, guaranteeing the ability to pull taut while not needed an extra handle. I find this an elegant solution and cuts down on the overall weight of the strop. Dovo treats the tightly woven linen with their white paste at the factory adding a bit of a sharpening effect. Make sure to remove the paste from your blade before stropping on the leather.Includes nickel plated swivel hardware for hanging and an integrated padded handle.Overall length: 24.5"Stropping surface: 2" x 15.5"Marked with the Col. Ichabod Conk logo.Made in Germany.
