PREMIUM LEATHER STROP: Parker’s American Made straight razor strop is handcrafted from premium-grade Latigo leather, which is an excellent surface for the stropping of straight razors, knives, carpenter tools and other cutlery items. If properly cared for, it will last you a lifetime!. FUNCTIONAL DESIGN: Parker Safety Razor’s hanging strop has a durable paddle handle riveted with genuine Chicago Screws to create the perfect amount of tension. A swivel hanging hook with lobster clasp on allows convenient hanging. TWIN WOVEN STROP: The attached twin woven canvas shaving strop is made of a durable webbed fabric that is used for warming up and cleaning the blade before and after razor or knife use for a smooth stropping experience. DIMENSIONS/SIZE: This full-size strop is 3-inches wide, which means you don’t need to perform the x-stroke technique when stropping a straight razor. The overall length is 27 inches, while the stropping area is 17 inches long – ideal for use with your razor. A PERFECT GIFT IDEA: Handmade in the USA, this 3” Latigo leather strop for straight razors is suitable for both professional barbershop and home use.

Its worth it. πŸ‘πŸ‘ Best Shaving Accessories

Don't listen to complaints about wrinkles or creases on delivery. As you can see from my photos the sling came in a long box and arrived in perfect condition. Very well made sling. Not all Latigo lines are created equal and the handling of this line exceeded my expectations. I am very happy with the purchase. The skin is thick and elastic, traction is excellent. The hardware is great and simple. I expect to have this sling for a very long time. I have never had a 3 inch suspension strap and…

Pros
  • Large Selection
Cons
  • Nothing Here

Crumpled/crumpled leather

The strap was improperly stored and/or packaged and was deformed upon arrival. Ordered once from Revain.com and a second time direct from Parker (Super Safety Razors) and BOTH straps were unfit for a razor. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Update: I donated my direct order from the Parker store (Super Safety Razors) to a colleague's son to learn from him and left two reviews (as above) on their website a few weeks apart. Both reviews require constant approval and will likely never be published, which…

Pros
  • Comfortable
Cons
  • Empty

great skin Long, wide strap.

I love this line! The leather part anyway. I'd rather have canvas or something similar than polypropylene for the prep, but the length and width of that and the quality of the leather are really good. The packaging was fine, unlike other reviewers I didn't notice any creases or other issues that can occur with poor packaging. The thing is very soft, smooth and a pleasure to use. I wouldn't choose this for my very first sling. It would be an expensive lesson for me.

Pros
  • New to my collection
Cons
  • Slightly wrinkled

Revain packaging warning / good sling

Came folded leaving creases on the skin. I had to sand, wet and roll to get a usable line. I don't like layered mesh (or whatever it is) looks like a pair mismatch (skin style should give a strong sense of tension: and polyester mesh gives 0 reviews): I was a beginner and only after many tries and failed results ( bad shave) I learned the importance of a smooth surface and what feedback means for a good sharpening technique. The supplier contacted me for a replacement leather: and now, with…

Pros
  • full kit
Cons
  • sad packaging
