3" English Bridle Chestnut Hanging Strop w/Leather Handle "Ashcroft Collection"
Please note: Unlike other models of strops these strops do not need a break in period. They are ready to strop right out of the box.
For this handcrafted strop, we have made no compromises in the selection of materials, and we have chosen only the best products available today, staying true to the traditions of yesterday.
The leather that we use is American top grade English Bridle. English Bridle is well established as the best choice for high end strops because of its ability to refresh a superb cutting edge. It also gives the best stropping experience available.
The fabric side of this strop is made from 100% cotton, and it is the same thickness as the leather.
With a thickness of 1/8“ this fabric gives a firm, authentic and effective draw unlike some of the thinner and sometimes even synthetic materials found on other strops today.
We are proud to offer this strop which will allow you to experience the same shave that was a part of your ancestor’s daily lives.
*Even top-grade American leather hides sometimes may have small blemishes or “range marks” which occur during the animal’s lifetime, and at Classic Edge we believe that it would be irresponsible and wasteful of us to discard every piece of leather that had a small flaw. However, we do take extra care to ensure that any blemishes are minimal and in no way compromise the stropping process.
