Our Largest Illinois Leather Razor Strop
The Illinois #361 Razor Strop measures 2 1/2" wide and 24" long. This strop is designed for straight razors and has two sides, a leather side and a linen side. The linen side for initial stropping. The smooth leather side is used for final stropping.
At 2 1/2” wide and 24” long, the #361 is the largest razor strop we carry. Unlike the other models, the #361 does not have a hand grip built into one end. This maximizes the surface area available for stropping. With the same smooth leather and durable linen as the other Illinois Leather Razor Strops, only more of both, this is an excellent large strop for straight razors.
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.
