Ok, you bought a straight razor and at some point, you figured out that you need to maintain it with a strop.

We got your back—well, your face and head.

From The Firehouse

Our longtime customer John Finley, both a Firefighter and bodybuilder, shaves his head every day and gave us a great review of the Blue Ell Strop.

“I was going through 5 to 7 razors a month, but when I switched to a straight razor now all I need to do it strop every few shaves. It has saved me HUNDREDS of dollars.”

Just a few strokes on Blue Eel returns any dull blade to like-new sharpness—no stone or file required.

Never again endure the painful yank-and-drag agony of a dull shaver, just strop it.

Blue Eel Strop

Our signature series blue eel strop is a beautiful addition to any kit. Beautiful elegant leather + thick blue canvas and quality connectivity brass.

A strop is a surface that is used after the finest stone for the final stage of sharpening. The function of a strop is to polish the edge and work off any burr left behind by sharpening stones.

Stropping 101

Never move the blade toward the cutting edge as it will cut into the strop, resulting in dulling of the edge and damage to the strop.

A few strokes are usually sufficient. A strop is best used before you even think your edge is dull.

Used consistently, it is a key step in maintaining a razor-sharp edge.

 

 

 You strop on the leather surface, not the rough leather bottom, but you use the very top of the strop. The blue part is a light cleaning of the edge before you start to strop.

Stropping is a motion that pulls the cutting edge of a blade away from a strip of leather in order to sharpen the blade. It’s a great method of keeping a razor clean and easy to use as it produces a very sharp final edge.

Stropping helps smooth the rough edges off your blade and sets the teeth in alignment—it gives a straight razor a keen edge to help make shaving easier. 

Hanging strops are the most common. They consist of a canvas strap and a leather strip.

Important Steps

There are two key things to consider when you are stropping your razor:

  1. Always draw the blade away from the cutting edge so that the razor doesn’t dig into the leather.
  2. Hold the razor at the same bevel angle consistently throughout the stropping process.
  3. VERY IMPORTANT - If you raise the angle up or lower it down, it will affect the edge of the razor in the wrong way and you will destroy the edge.
