description

These special Strops were inspired by the Japanaese Katana Sword with its diamond wrapping made famous by the Samuri . We use C3+ construction utilizing glue, stitching, rivets, heavy guaged leather handles and all edges are treated with beveling, sanding, and burnishing for a better fit and finish in the hand and better appearance to the eye. The Shell Cordovan runs from end to end under the handle and we add even more Shell Cordovan to embellish the handle with diamond inlays.

We buy the largest shells available on the market to provide our customers with the longest usable strop length possible. The longest usable strop length we have seen in the shell cordovan strop market is 15.5" for a 3" wide strop (if you can find them as most shell cordovan strops are 2.5" wide). Our C1 Shell Cordovan Strops start at 17" of usable strop space while our C3+ versions start at 19.5". The limited supply of Shell Cordovan in the global market comes in a standardized 4oz weight as it is generally designated to the luxury shoe, wallet, and watch strap markets. This is the strop you buy if you want the best leather surface for your razor. If you prefer a heavier guage strop, we refer you to our North of Cordovan strops that guage in at 9oz thickness.
