Handmade by Thiers-Issard of France, this handheld dual leather strop is generally used as a substitute to the hanging leather and canvas strop, possible through a 'hollowed body' design allowing the leather strop to have flex, much like the hanging strop.

PRODUCT DETAILS


The leather case measures 37mm x 90mm

Presented in a premium grade brown baragina leather case with a storage pouch for your straight razor, this handheld strop is ideal, but not exclusively, for travel.


HOW TO USE


Made of natural hardwood with a mahogany finish, this handheld strop comes with two different leather surfaces. 

The smooth leather is for pre shave stropping and finishing and the other is intended for use with sharpening pastes.

A brand new or a restored cut throat razor supplied by Executive Shaving should not need stropped/honed for at least 9 months. However, please read up on stropping in our Shavepedia. For more information, click here.

Happy with this, just as I am with my Thiers Issard Le Dandy razor.
Both well made and at a good price.

Starting with the negative first, there is no question that this is an expensive tool. Is it worth it? I feel the old adage "He knew the price of everything but the value of nothing" lurking around the corners! The jury is still out on this call but TI have undeniably produced a top quality strop, supremely well put together with top quality materials - the baragnia leather case is a beauty - it performs its task as stated and its size is ideal for unobtrusive travel.
What I can say if pressed is that I would not replace it like for like even though I don't think I regret buying it in the first instance. There are other products out there that are way cheaper and I am sure perform equally well with matching quality - I would probably go for ES's own paddle strop (no case) but less than half the price. I had initially planned to restrict myself to just this paddle strop but I will be buying an extra wide conventional hanging leather.
