​Care of the Strop

Posted by Jim Bilger on Jan 24, 2022

So that your STROP can do its job thoroughly and last for a long time, we have some great tips to help you care for it properly.

  1. Keep your strop clean and free of foreign objects. Even small dirt particles can deform and damage the cutting edge of your straight razor. 
  2. Massage Dovo Leather Balm and Strop Dressing into the leather with the ball of the thumb at regular intervals. This step protects it from drying out and preserves its natural flexibility. 
  3. Do not store your strop in damp or harsh environments such as your bathroom or in direct sunlight.
