We say, there are no better leather strops available than those produced by Mountain Mike. Each strop is handcrafted by the man himself from the finest Latigo leather. This leather has been treated with natural leather conditioners so that it will last more than a lifetime and never dry out or crack. Mountain Mike himself is a legend in the San Jacinto mountains and the town of Idyllwild, California. A true Mountain Man, one of a disappearing breed, he has over 30 years experience as a leather worker. Preserving the disappearing skills and techniques of his art. Generally larger in size than other strops so less passes needed to maintain the razors edge. Highly recommended.
