    A beautiful strop of vegetable tanned horsehide and real linen from Torolf.
    This gentleman does a range of leather work beyond fantastic razor strops.

    Indeed he does. The name says it all. Very fair prices and about a 5 week lead time currently on strops. Ordering via email, he will email you an invoice payable in NOK.
    Order and forget about it. Your strop will arrive in accordance with the lead time. Kindly just let the gentlemen do his work. His natural linen is just superb.

    Yes he does great work, I have been using my kanayama for over a year now , but I wanted Torolf,s linen, I got that at a very reasonable price ,, so then I thought about it and got the strop and linen combo also , and it is perfect , nice smooth surface and easy draw, can't beat the price either for what he delivers, mine came on Monday this week ,band your about right it was 5 weeks.

    I have a couple of vegetable-tanned horsehide strops from Torolf and love 'em. From the pix, yours strikes me as the oil-tanned Horween horsehide.

    I have an oil-tanned (which yours appears to be) strop, and liked it so much that I just received a vegetable-tanned strop from Torolf. He does excellent work, and is a pleasure to deal with.
