Made of a high-quality natural leather, the Kanayama #6300 strop is hand-finished in Japan. The #6300 strop is crafted from real cordovan horse leather, and is ideal for the heavy-user who makes a hobby of sharpening. You'll find two strops bound together by a metal clamp: the canvas strop is used to warm your blade before honing, and the leather strop is the surface on which you sharpen. At the head of the metal clamp, you'll find a snap hook, used to fasten your strop to a fixed surface, allowing you to sharpen safely. Keep this strop somewhere handy: your blade and your shave will rely on it in times of dullness.
Unlike sharpening stones, all Kanayama strops have roughly the same grit. Each model number instead represents the thickness of the leather. Ranging from 2196 to 80000, thicker strops will last longer, but require more material and time to craft and are therefore more expensive items.
Famously made in Tokyo by one man, Mr. Kanoyama, whose brand was formed when he misspelled his own name, these strops have become world famous for their quality and durability. Look for the Kanayama logo on each strop.
