GSG Shell Cordovan - 2 1/2" Wide x 21 1/2" Stropping Surface - Barber Style Brown Premium Razor Strop
This strop, handmade in our shop measures 2 1/2 inches wide with a 21 1/2 inch long stropping area on both the Dark Brown English shell cordovan and Swedish made 100% cotton 'linen' sides. Strops with unhandled ends are the most commonly found vintage type and we think that the range of hand holds that they allow help to explain their popularity amongst old school barbers. The shell cordovan used in this strop is the ultimate in top-tier leathers. It is often used in dress shoes and other luxury items and is prized for its smooth, slick surface. This particular type of leather's rarity and cost is due to the many months needed for the tanning process and the fact that only a few square feet are obtained from each horsehide.
Imported from a mill in Sweden, the carefully selected cotton material used for the cloth side is of the finest quality with a fine and tight weave. The heavy duty hanger clip and ball bearing swivel hold everything securely at the top end.
Handmade by us here in the USA; including leather selection, hand cutting, beveling and assembly, we have produced our strops to achieve a level of performance and quality that is a step above other products on the market.
Only the finest materials have been used in this strop:
- Made in the USA hardware, with stainless steel (hanger clip and rings, hanger bar) and nickel plated brass (fastening screws and swivel components)
- Chromexcel horsebutt leather from Horween in Chicago, Illinois - used for connecting parts, handles
- Shell cordovan horsehide, from Clayton of Chesterfield in England
- 100% Cotton 'linen' cloth stropping surface, from a mill in Sweden
Leather and cotton replacement sections are available upon request, but subject to availability of what hides we have on hand.
