Our most popular Illinois Leather Razor Strop

The Illinois #127 Razor Strop measures 2 1/2" wide and 23" long including hand grip, and has a sturdy clip for hanging. This strop has two sides, a leather side and a linen side. The linen side is for initial stropping and the leather side is for fine stropping. This strop is fantastic for sharpening straight razors.

This our most popular strop for straight razors. It is similar in construction to the Illinois #206 Razor Strop and the Illinois #835 Razor Strop but it is longer and wider than both. The extra length and width makes it easier and faster to use.

Q. Do you recommend Razor Strop Dressing for your Razor Strops?

A. Yes. The leather on Illinois Strops is treated to provide a good surface for stropping and dressing is not required on your new strop. However, the addition of Fromm's Razor Strop Dressing improves the texture, creating an ideal stropping surface. Older strops that are showing signs of hardening or drying out can also be rejuvenated with Fromm's Razor Strop Dressing.

I recently placed my first order after finding you on the web while looking for grinding wheels. I am a customer for life. Here's why. My first order was a simple white grinding wheel for a "normal joe's shop". When I received the wrong wheel (150 grit instead of the ordered 100 grit) I called and without hesitation or the 3rd degree another wheel was sent off. No questioning of my integrity, intelligence or honor. Simply "I am sorry, we'll send the correct wheel off immediately..." The right thing was done by a neat guy. I was treated like an adult. Unbelievable in this day and age...proper...and priceless. Price, performance, responsiveness and customer service par excel-lance. 6-Stars! All my sharpening orders, albeit small shop orders, will now be with you. Promote you I will.
