Our premium cowhide strops are made from 8 oz. vegetable tanned tooling leather. We intentionally leave our strops unconditioned, so that you can break in using your preferred method, but in our opinion our strops really need no special treatment at all because they feel broken in already. In addition, our strops have a poly webbing fabric that’s great for removing small burs or for applying pastes if you like to use pastes on your fabric strop. This handsome strop will produce superior results that you can count on for years to come.
