Description: The Illinois Razor Strop #361 by Fromm is handcrafted by the oldest strop manufacturer in the USA. It measures 2 1/2" wide and 24" long and has a sturdy clip for hanging.
This strop has two sides. The linen side is for initial stropping. The leather side is for fine stropping. This strop is fantastic for sharpening straight razors. Many folks also find strops helpful for refining the edges on woodworking tools and kitchen knives.
At 2 1/2" wide and 24" long, the Fromm #361 is the largest razor strop we carry. Unlike our other strops, the #361 does not have a hand grip built into one end. This maximizes the surface area available for stropping. We’ve found that using a strop without a handle leads to less cupping of the leather during use. With the same smooth leather and durable linen as the other Illinois Razor Strops, only more of both, this is an excellent large strop for straight razors.
