Dovo - 152 Hanging Strop, Cowhide Leather
The DOVO 152 razor strop is used to sharpen the edge of your razor before each shave.
Before shaving with a classic straight razor, you should strop it. To do this, you place your blade with the back and the cutting edge on the tightly tensioned strap and pull it without pressure towards the back. Once you have reached the end, turn the blade over the back and repeat the process for the other side. After 10-15 turns, the blade is ready for the perfect shave. You can also hang the strop. It maximizes space because you can roll it up and stow it at home.
Occasional polishing with a leather balm preserves the smooth surface of the strop.
Dovo strops exclusively use vegetable-tanned cow leather. This technique, also known as "old tanning", prepares the leather for optimal use as a strop. This treatment is to ensure that it has no scarring or unevenness making it perfectly suited for stropping straight razors with its supple surface.
