    I canít say enough good things about my new strop. I waited about two years. Right when Iíd decided to order one Alistair took an 18 month leave. A couple months after he started making strips again he sent me a note. He had told me he had to shop for Cordovan then when he was going through everything he messaged he had a beautiful Burgundy and a black piece more than enough for a 3Ē strop. I had mine made with standard barber end and it comes with flax linen strop as well. Itís the first Cordova leather Iíve ever had. Iím impressed with the workmanship and detail. Itís strops incredible. The draw is fast and it will really put a mirror polish on the edge. For a high end strop I recommend Westholm Strops.

    Wow, that is simply beautiful-classy and elegant without all the fancy appointments. Enjoy stropping nirvana!
