A 40 mm wide strop requires a more precise stropping technique than a wider strop. The great advantage of a narrow strop is that the leather hardly bends along the narrow width. This ensures exquisite sharpness.
Hanging strops are used to straighten up razor edges, since they adjust to the rounding of the blade. The supplied hook is mounted on the wall and the strop is hung on it with the attached swivelling clamp. The swivelling clamp also allows quick switching of the two sides. The sanded top of our strops is made of high-quality vegetable-tanned cowhide (thickness 3 mm), which is exceptionally soft. If required, the rear, cotton side of the strop can be used with so-called sharpening pastes, and thus serves as a substitute for sharpening on a fine honing stone.
