Stropt make handheld leather strops for sharpening disposable and cartridge razors - this extends their useful life by 3-5 times, saving money and reducing plastic waste. With over 2 billion razors discarded in America alone each year (we reckon that must equate to at least 10 billion globally) every little thing we can do to reduce our consumption of plastic make is worthwhile.
Our 'Razor Honing Pads' are made from 100% natural and sustainable materials - the leather is premium vegetable tanned shoulder of cowhide, the bases are a choice of Bamboo, FSC Iroko and Reclaimed Teak and the packaging is recycled Kraft paper. They are handmade from scratch in Somerset, UK.
Leather has been used to maintain the edge on blades for hundreds of years. Untreated leather becomes maleable when wet and so the leather adopts the profile of the base of the razor, ensuring close contact between the leather and the blades. It is a very old but effective solution for a modern problem.
At recommended retail price points of £9.95 - £13.95 these are an interesting and thoughtful gift for anyone who wet shaves
