Genuine Horsebutt Strops

Genuine Horsebutt Strops

from 15.00

I have been collecting strops for a number of years, and all them in the best condition were made of horse butt. Because of its dense nature, it prevents rounding the cutting edge that happens with softer leathers. The mounted version is  17” overall length, 2.5" wide, with 15” of horsebutt, 2.5”. There are two pieces of leather mounted, one flesh side, and one hairside. I like to use the .5 micron chromium oxide honing compound ( a little baby or mineral oil helps smooth it out) on the flesh side, then perform a final stropping on the naked hair side. Also available unmounted in 15″ x 3″ and 12″ x 2″ stamped strips.  8-10 oz. thick.
