Beautiful Russian Leather Razor Strop

The Illinois #827 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 beautiful strop is ideal for straight razors.

This our only strop made from Russian Leather. Russian Leather is made with a special tanning process that results in a tough, long lasting yet beautifully supple surface that is ideal for razor strops. The Illinois #827 is the same size as the Illinois #127 Razor Strop differing only in the special leather.

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.

Thanks John, I am so glad to be working with people who know their products and how to use them. You have a very informative and well laid out website and I learned a lot. It was a rainy Sunday and I watched every video and read through each article. The information you provided was very helpful in teaching technique and helping me decide what to buy. Also your products are so well thought out, that no matter what stone you prefer (oil, water or diamond), there is a nice package available for a beginner. All of the products you put together each had their own advantages and believe me, each one spent some time in the shopping cart until I made my final decision.
