The DOVO 186 adjustable tensioning razor strop is a classic tool for stropping your straight razor. First, tighten the mechanics and then, as usual, pull the razor gently over the conditioned leather. With this, you can also straighten the edge of your conventional knives. The vegetable-tanned leather is characterized by good skin compatibility.
Leather: Dovo uses vegetable-tanned cow leather for all their strops. This technique, also known as "old tanning", prepares the leather for optimal use as a strop. We treat our leather this way to ensure that it has no scarring or unevenness making it perfectly suited for stropping straight razors with its supple surface.
Maintenance: To ensure that it does not dry out, you shouldn’t hang or store it in direct sunlight or near a heat source. You should also avoid storing it in the humidity of the bathroom. Occasional polishing with a leather balm preserves the smooth surface of the strop.
