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.

Dear Mr. Carmona: From the first time I spoke to you by telephone, I have been greatly impressed by your willingness, even your eagerness to take your time from your own personal activities to assist me. I am awed by your extensive knowledge and work in a field that is such a benefit to so many people in so many kind of activities. Your website is a real asset, and a testimony to your desire to be helpful. I wish to thank you again for your kindness as well as your fervor in the way your company deals with interested parties, even those who may purchase nothing, or only small items, as I have done.
