A Lot of Strop in a Small Package
Illinois #206 Razor Strop. Strop measures 2" wide and 20" long. This strop has two sides a leather side and a linen side. The linen side is for initial stropping and the leather side for final stropping. This strop has the same high quality leather and linen as the other Illinois Leather Razor Strops and is great for sharpening straight razors.
The #206 is similar in construction to the Illinois #127 Razor Strop and the Illinois #835 Razor Strop but is smaller than both, offering a more compact strop.
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.
