Stemming from a long history of industry expertise, Herold Solingen's 183 Juchten Leather Strop is of the finest sharpening tools on the market. Its honing surface is made of a special Russian cowhide, well-known for its hard-wearing surface and elasticity, ideal conditions for sharpening your blade. The leather is specially bark-tanned, then treated with a fine birch oil, rendering it water resistant. A 100% flax-sourced linen canvas is knit on the reverse side of the strop, a high-quality material used to warm your blade before you hone. At the holding end of your strop, you'll find a comfortable cushion leather handle, easy to grip on to while you sharpen. At the head of the strop, you'll find a metal swivel hook, allowing you to hook your strop to a fixed surface, ensuring your safety in its use. The swivel hook feature allows you to simply flip the strop over to whichever side you need, without having to go through the trouble of unhooking it from the wall. Store this German-made tool somewhere safe: it'll prove essential for keeping your straight razor in mint condition.
Since 1919, Herold Solingen has been producing premium quality leather strops as razor honing tools. Made by Kohl & Laibach out of Solingen, Germany, these strops use a special Russian leather and a vegetable tanning process to create strops of unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.

Soft and workable with ample feedback. Gives a nice edge. The Russian leather is a little more high maintenance in that it requires paste on a more frequent basis, but it's worth the effort.
