This is our own 3″ wide sprung-bed paddle strop. We recommend this strop as with most razors the leather strop will accommodate the whole edge of your straight razor. Why make life more difficult than it has to be? Both sides are of napped leather in the french style and can be used as-is with our diamond stropping pastes or with chromium paste. This provides a really cost-effective maintenance system that ideal for razors whose edge has just gone off-song-or as an everyday leather strop for general use. Size approx. 16 inch/41 cm overall length, 9.5 inches/25 cm bed length, 3 inches/7.5 cm wide and 5/8 inch/18 mm thick. The colour of the strop beds may vary from that illustrated.
