The Dovo Extra Wide Russian Leather Strop is the the widest strop on the market. Its width enables you to strop in a simple forward and back motion - without having to use an "X" pattern like you do with narrower strops. Made from the finest Russian Type Leather (which is only used in the very best strops), it measures a whopping 80mm in width and 570mm in length. Also features stitched and riveted construction for durability and a nickel plated swivelling loop for hanging. It's a beautiful strop and it comes ready to use. Made in Germany by Dovo Solingen and covered by a 2 Year Australian Warranty.

I own multiple strops, but this is hands down the best. 3 inch means no need for X pattern stroping, which makes it a great strop from amatuer to pro.

As others have said this strop is of the highest quality and is excellent to use. A little on the expensive side but well worth it.

I've found this great to use, particularly due to its width which makes it super-easy (and fast) to work with. Money well spent.

    • Is there canvas or leather on the other side?
    • This is just a single sided strop. The reverse side isn't intended for use.

    • Will i still need a strop with canvas or will this be sufficient?
    • This alone would be sufficient. It isn't compulsory to strop on canvas.

    • What is the difference between the different coloured pastes? Will using a paste other than yellow on this strop have a negative impact?
    • The yellow paste is to maintain the leather and keep it supple. The white paste is a chalky paste and is to be applied to the canvas side of the strop (if it has one - this particular strop doesn't). The red, green and black pastes are sharpening pastes (each colour a different grade). Each grade of paste needs its own dedicated stropping surface and once you put sharpening paste on a strop, they're not easy to remove. For this reason, don't apply sharpening pastes to your 'everyday' strop. If you're going to use them, you need an additional strop (or piece of flat balsa wood will also work).

    • Hi there,

      Can this strop be used for every day use? I purchased the dovo olivewood straight razor and simpson badger brush for my husband, now getting the final bits and pieces.

      Also, do you recommend the dovo paste that comes in the tub for this strop?

      Thanks,
      Kim
    • Hi Kim. This is a great strop for everyday use. It's nice and wide, so you don't need to use an 'X' pattern. Yes, I would suggest getting the Dovo Solingen Leather Balm for Razor Strops (for use on the leather side).

    • I received this strop today.

      Do I strop on the light/logo side or on the dark side?

      To which side to I apply the dovo leather balm for strops?

      How often does this need to be done?

      Thanks

    • Strop on the light side (with the Dovo logo on it). The Dovo Leather Balm is intended for use on the leather side and you should apply a very small amount every time you use the strop.
