All Kanayama strops are given a number that relates to the thickness of the leather, ranging from 2196 at the thinnest, to 80000 at the thickest. Thicker leather is more durable and can withstanding more stroppings over its lifespan, but requires more time to craft, and is more expensive as a result. Each strop is hand ground, making Mr. Kanoyama one of the only craftsmen in the world to do this.
Each one of these premium leather strops is handmade by Mr. Kanoyama, an industry expert who has now established a world-wide reputation for the exceptional quality of his craft. Each strop is handmade in his workshop in Tokyo, the legacy of one man.

This is simply a wonderfui strop. There were some slight ripples that eventually worked themselves out with some palm rubbing and stropping. However with all that said I was not a fan of the packaging. But USPS saves the day again.
