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.

There are three versions of this strop. There is also the Superstrop, if you are interested in using sub-micron diamond sprays.

  1. A mounted version, 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. 7-9 oz. thick.

  2. Unmounted, a 15″ x 3″ strip. Many people like to use the flesh side with the compound, and the hair side naked for a final strop.

  3. Unmounted, a 12″ x 2″ strip. Many people like to use the flesh side with the compound, and the hair side naked for a final strop.
