DOVO Solingen Handheld Cowhide Razor Strop
The DOVO manual handheld tension screw strop is suitable for polishing the cutting edges of blades like straight razors, kitchen, hunting and hobby knives. Both sides of the vegetable-tanned leather are untreated and open-pored for the absorption of grinding paste. The balm should be applied to the strop in a filmy layer and then polished with the heel of the hand or a cotton cloth. The edge must only glide on the leather surface during the stropping but not stick to it. The leather must remain clean and undamaged. Fine metal splinters on the strop can damage and/or destroy the edge and point. In this case, the straight razor may need to be reground. Other knives can also be damaged if that same strop were to be used.
The tension mechanism is made of stainless steel and the vegetable-tanned leather are made in Solingen, Germany.
