These strops are of the finest quality, the hanger is cast in our own foundry from solid brass and nickel plated, then buffed to a lustrous finish. The strop is a full 3"(76mm) wide x 30"(762mm) long. No-one else offers this size. This width allows you to use straight strokes with no need for the X pattern stroke, although you can if you prefer; and the longer length will allow you to take fewer laps. This is a definite plus in your daily maintenance routine.
THE HANGER RING OPENS TO SNAP AROUND ANY TOWEL ROD, PIPE, BAR, HOOK, HANDLE OR DOOR KNOB, AND WILL SPIN 360 deg., AS WELL AS TIP SIDE TO SIDE.
Each strop consists of 2 pieces and five configurations are available.
Premium Horsehide: Bark Tanned ~ The standard for strops for over 150 years ~ fast consistent stropping surface with excellent results.
This is a natural material, it is the skin of a horse, and occasionally will have some marks. These are often scars from rubbing up against a barbwire fence, or may be wrinkles from age just like our skin. When it is in un-dyed neutural Russet color these mark are visable, in the darker tannage they are not, colors may vary and color streaks may be present in HORSEHIDE!
They do not affect the performance of the strop in any way and are your guarantee that it is real horse hide !
Cordovan Latago: Preferred by some, tried and true ~ offers a slower and creamy stropping experiance ~ a matter of preference.
See the review of this strop on the Badger and Blade website click here.
This offering is: Premium Horsehide & Codovan Latago.Imperial No.1 & Imperial No.2
These strops are tanned specially for us by Horween to the same formulation as were the strops in 1900.
These strops far exceed any other on the market bar none and will enhance any fine razor's edge.
All PEGASUS strops are truly a work of art and fine craftsmanship.
Every part of these strops is made by hand, in America by Americans.

4 Stars because it is my first strop.
My second " travel strop " is pretty sad by comparison.. but serves it's purpose.
This thing is a Cadillac.
I'm going to go ahead and add a pull handle to the end of it though, so I can utilize the full length of the horse... but even as is, the mile long swipe makes for short work, and the two grade leather strop is ideal for the finishing end of finishing...
I have only been at it a couple years, and not every day, but I really like this strop.
