Made with the smoothest leather available, truly amazing feedback. This is a simple yet VERY effective way to strop your straight razor. If you have problems with with a hanging strop this is the way to go. Just a month with this training tool and you will know what you were doing wrong and ready to tackle that hanging strop once more. This is my favorite way of stropping when I have too many razors to hone, just turn on the T.V and relax, it won't be long when you wish you had more razors to strop! All our Board Strops are made of Hardwood and not pine, to prevent warping and to have a solid base.
