The Algonquin Straight Razor Strop

     Made only for The Classic Edge Shaving Store and part of the Ashcroft Collection, these beautiful pieces of Art are made in very small runs. Mr. Ashcroft is known for his attention to detail and love for the Art of Straight Razor Shaving. Working together we have come up with a user friendly one piece strop, and since it is made of English Bridle there is no need for a Canvas back. We decided on 2 3/4" for the width  as this is between the 2 1/2" and 3" strops which are the most popular widths on the market todayOn all but the largest razors, no "X" pattern stropping is needed although we do recommend it. The leather is already pre-treated so no break in period is needed.  The working surface length is 18" long. Many strops are either two short and some too long so this was taken into consideration when deciding which length works best. Too short and you have to do too many passes with more chances to cut your strop, too long and it is not comfortable. The handle is what really sets this strop aside from all others. Made with solid Walnut this design is meant for several different ways to hold your strop, even if you are right or left handed. Easily the most handsome strop available today.

     Every strop is made of natural materials and no two will ever be alike. Leather hides for example are never absolutely perfect because of “range marks” which occur during the animal’s lifetime. We believe that it would be irresponsible and wasteful of us to discard every piece of leather that had a small fault. However we do take extra care to insure that any range marks are minimal and in no way would affect the stropping process.
     As a small family run business we take great pride in our Customer Service, and also offer a "No questions asked" return policy. We only ask that you return the product in the condition you received it.  At The Classic Edge your satisfaction is what is most important, so if you ever have questions or doubts please always feel free to contact us. We're here for you personally during the day, and our answering service only comes on when we are closed, but expect a call back the very next day if we miss you!! Thank you so much for visiting our online store and have a wonderful day.
Handcrafted in Canada with USA Leather
