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.

Received my Sharpening System today,(Norton IM83) and I've got to tell you that I am excited about using this product. I've been in the meat cutting business for 45 years, and as you can imagine, I've used allot of different types and styles of sharpening equipment. I have had 3 Norton Multi-Oil Stone units in my lifetime, and then I see this IM83 and I think that this is what I need to carry with me when and wherever I go. I just LOVE this little box full of expertise equipment to keep me sharp and at a razors edge. Thank you for the service, it was fast and easy, and I received it within 3 days of ordering. I know knives and how they work, and I can't wait to start putting that edge on my "other" knives I own.
