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 strop is 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.
