The Dark Stag Buffalo Leather Strop

The Dark Stag Buffalo Leather Strop is made from supple buffalo leather and is the ultimate tool for polishing and smoothing your cut throat razor blades.


You’ve purchased a high quality, beautiful razor, one perhaps like the Dark Stag Cut Throat Razor. If you have purchased one like ours, it has likely gone through a large number of meticulous manufacturing processes. And that’s before it’s been professionally honed and whetted or stropped to obtain an impeccable edge. If you don’t maintain your razor with this tool, all this time and effort has been wasted.

Preferably your razor should be stropped before each us to keep the edge polished. A Buffalo Leather Strop isn’t designed to sharpen the blade itself, just to polish out imperfections on the edge of the blade. The purchase of a good leather strop and a few strokes before each use should keep your razor edge gliding effortlessly for many months.

The Dark Stag Buffalo Leather Strop covers all this and more. The beautiful buffalo leather has all of the benefits of high quality cow leather, in terms of grade and strength, with the added bonus of a beautiful, strong grain which we endeavour to preserve, and an eco-friendly tanning process, using only natural products and nothing toxic for the environment. The end result is a durable leather, which is soft and supple. The two separate sides of the Buffalo Leather Strop deal with different methods of care for your cut throat razor. The coarse side is ideal for coarse edge alignment and the fine side for fine blade edge alignment.

A fine stropping paste is advised to make the process easier and keep the leather smooth and supple.
