Video:  How to Strop a Straight Razor

     There is a fact that all Retailers selling Illinois Strops seem to not tell their clients about. ALL Illinois strops must be treated with a Fromm strop dressing in order to break the strop in correctly.  Now not all strops need to be treated in this manner. English Bridle is ready to go out of the starting gate, and the German style Russian Leather like what you see from Dovo and Timor strops are also not needing this treatment. They are a lighter Tan looking leather that is Micro polished.  Now if you buy a Illinois top grain cowhide Barber Strop and treat it with the Fromm strop dressing,  you will have a great strop with great results. This is about as close as you can come to a Vintage Style Barber Strop.  You will also hear tips like lather up your strop with shaving soap and to use your brush. Please do not do this!!!  98% of the tips out there for strops are for bringing back old Vintage Strops.  With this Cowhide Leather strop just give it 1-2 treatments and let it sit over night, then strop a razor and judge if you like the Feedback. If you don't feel you are getting enough, just treat it again until you feel the resistance you are looking for. Also remember a little goes a long way!  Thanks so much for visiting our website and have a wonderful day!
