This Chefknivestogo hanging leather strop can be used for razor or kitchen knife stropping. It measures 3" x 18" and has a round eyelet on the top to hang but we recommend using it on a flat bench to add firmness to the back of the strop to keep it from rolling your edges. Both the split side and the smooth finished side can be used on this strop and it's made of bark tanned cow leather. For decades you could find similar these strops in barber shops around the country when they offered straight razor shaves to their customers. I've been to many barber shops that still have old ones hanging from the chairs that are now in disuse. The strop can be loaded with diamond spray or other honing compounds to add some super fine abrasive qualities to the strop and allow it to hone your edges a little more quickly.

Please note, our razor customers tend to be picky and this is a very inexpensive leather strop with minor imperfections on it. It's perfectly fine to use but please don't expect a $200 strop for $20.

5  Great Beginner Strop, May 11, 2018
Posted By: Jeronimo

I got the strop super fast, great shipping. It was a little dry but I applied some neatsfoot oil and it softened up and works well. My straight razors are coming out just fine. Great deal and came packaged wonderfully. I would recommend this strop for any beginner.

The strop came pretty dry with little draw, but after applying some neatsfoot oil, it softened up and began to work well. The leather also changed colors completely, from light tan to reddish brown. I use it to maintain my straight razors to good effect.

I completely agree with the video review on the website, this is a great strop to start with. It does a good job on all my knives, and I find that I use it all the time to get the edges just that much better.Plus, it's affordable enough to have an extra on hand. Excellent addition to your sharpening equipment.

Let me come right out and say, 20 bucks plus shipping is a killer deal on this... Probably your best bet for a starter razor strop. I have been paddle/bench stropping my razors for a while now, but decided to give a hanger style a try. *The good: -price is great, and it comes from a very reliable source (chefknivestogo!) -Not horribly small like some "starter" strops in its price range, and the fit n finish is quite decent! *The not so good: -For me the smooth side does not seem to have much draw at all... not a bad thing just a preference. -the only real issue I have is, parts of the strop seem to be wavy and slightly bumpy, i'm having trouble smoothing them out. This strop would be a good candidate for some of that strop conditioning paste you see sometimes. A bit dry. Its going to take some breaking in. Overall, the good outweighs the bad, so its a good product. 5 stars if the strop wasn't wavy. BUY IT!
