The Kanayama #2196 strop is a handsome complement to your straight razor, the perfect aide for keeping your blade in impeccable condition. Made of a fine cordovan horse leather, this strop keeps your blade sharp, and the attached woven canvas helps warm the blade before you begin to sharpen. The metal clamp at the head of the strop features a hook, allowing you to secure the leather to a firm surface while you work your blade. Pair this smart Japanese strop with your straight razor for best wet shaving results.
Each Kanayama strop number relates to the thickness of the leather. This 2196 model is the thinnest strop produced, and is the most affordable as it uses the least amount of material and labor to complete.
Handmade 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.
