    Default NOS Tripoli Boarhide strop with 6/8 Winchester razor

    Nice pair. Hard to see Winchesters in this shape. This # 8626 shaves great. Scales are straight and bolsters are perfect.
    Tight and sharp!

    The strop..
    A nice Tripoli #941 Boarhide Strop with a Razorfeld strop-sock.

    The boarhide panel is NOS from the now-defunct Tripoli Barber Supply in Philadelphia.
    Tripoli went out of business in 1955, so these panels, while unused and in storage, were very dry and stiff. Over 2 months of gentle re-hydration and treatment has rendered them nice and pliable again. Boarhide is naturally some really tough leather. The backside resembles a football while the front is nice and smooth.

    The secondary fabric is NOS polyester firehose, ironed smooth and stitched on each end with a nice vinyl tab sewn on the bottom for a comfortable grip. Both the leather and the fabric strops feature a brass grommet in the hardware mounting hole.
    The hardware is new with a nice snap swivel and welded stainless ring to hang with.

    The strop also comes with a cool Razorfeld strop sock to protect it from dust, etc.
    It features a split 'tail' on the backside to facilitate removal or simply bunching it up around the hardware in order to use the strop.

    I have used these for some time and can say they are among the most effective of my strops.
    Personally, I like the lighter draws in these. Easy to use.
    Boarhide and pigskin strops were quite popular back in the day, but no maker I know of has made them again in modern times. Indeed, a nice strop here.
    First ones in a while....Takes lots of time to condition them!

    235.00 for this nice pair, shipped Conus, flat in a priority box. If buyer is in another place, I will apply 11.00 toward shipping with buyer paying the difference in type of shipping desired. Strop will need to be rolled and into a smaller container in that case.
    Paypal F&F, cleared personal check, postal money order, or CASH!
    Thanks for looking.
