A good quality razor strop is essential if you shave with a straight razor. Keep your straight razor as sharp as possible by stropping daily.
Paddle strops are great for the newly initiated into "cut-throat" shaving. The advantages of paddle strops are a taut surface, making them excellent for beginners, their compact size, which is really useful for travelling, and their convenience of use.
Hanging leather razor strops, like paddle strops, help to keep your straight razors sharp. Their leather surface polishes the blade, removes burr and aligns the edge of the bevel. They can be used with or without strop paste.
