A Strop is an essential piece of cut-throat shaving equipment. It is used before every shave, so you are going to need one.

Stropping is a learned technique that takes some time to master - and until you do it's likely that your strop is going to get nicks and cuts. We recommend starting with a basic strop until you gain a feel for it, then upgrade to a high quality strop once you're confident. There's nothing sadder than a beautiful new leather strop with a big ugly cut in it.

There are three main types of hanging strop in the world of cut-throat razor shaving; 

The leather strop – for stropping before every shave. This aligns the very fine shaving edge on the blade, a must when using a cut-throat razor. 

The pre-strop – used before the leather strop. This protects the leather by cleaning the razor first. A pre-strop is usually made of a natural cotton canvas or linen. 

The linen strop – used to hold abrasive stropping pastes to sharpen the razor edge. Linen strops can also be used for the pre-strop stage.
