Item details

As used for many years by barbers, wood carvers, hunters, and the men who really like their knives, this traditional premium leather strop will put a finish on your blade that is unmatched by anything else. It is made from extremely high quality black latigo leather that lasts a life time and is paired with a professional quality buffing compound. Latigo is the traditionally preferred leather used by barbers, wood carvers and leather craftsmen alike because of its super smooth finish and its ability to retain the buffing compound. Simply rub the buffing compound onto the leather strop and sharpen your knife by dragging the blade up and down instead of pushing your blade as you would with a ceramic or steel sharpener. The strop comes with a loop on one end attached with a removable post screw so you can loop it over a stable structure and grip the handle on the strop while sharpening your blade. The strop is two inches wide with about twenty-four inches of actual space to sharpen your blade. It also does come with 1/8 pound of buffing compound.
WARNING! This will leave your blade razor sharp when used as a finishing tool. So be careful!

Additional policies

SIZING OF THE BELT is done by measuring from where the belt bends backward on its self over the buckle (the turn-back) to the center hole of the belt. This is NOT the same as your pant size or your waist size. When ordering a belt, the most accurate sizing method is to measure (in inches please) the belt you already wear from the turn-back to the hole in which you wear the buckle. Please take into account if you are planning on buying the belt for conceal and carry, wear the gun in the holster on or in your belt to see what hole in the belt you will use and measure to that hole. TROPHY BUCKLES are the same way. If you plan on wearing a trophy buckle on the belt then put the buckle on the belt you wear normally and try it on to see what hole you wear the buckle in. Then measure from the turn-back to the hole the buckle goes in. If you do get the wrong size belt, don't freak out, I will re-size by cutting down the turn-back end if it is too long or adding a billet to the tip or the turn-back if the belt is too short. There is a ten dollar re-sizing fee.

CUSTOM ORDER questions are WELCOME!! Although I will say we do not accept all jobs. If you have a different belt design idea or would like to substitute for a different material it is usually not a problem. With custom orders keep in mind the price usually goes up. I understand that people want what they want and I enjoy doing different projects so I am always willing to discuss any ideas and am more than fair on the price when compared to others in this profession.

WHOLESALE is a possibility i am willing to consider at this time. Volume and pricing negotiable. Please contact me for more details.
