Herold Solingen's 183 Prima Rindleder Leather Strop is a professional quality honing tool, made with a premium cowhide, lending your blade an ideally abrasive sharpening surface. A 100% linen canvas lines the reverse side of the strop, a material that can be used for warming your blade before honing. The holding end boasts a comfortable leather cushion handle, its easy grip giving you optimal control while your other hand sharpens. The metal swivel hook at the cap of the strop is exceptionally durable, and it can be hooked to a firm surface, ensuring your safety while honing. The swivel feature conveniently allows you the option to flip your strop over to whichever side you need, saving you the trouble of unattaching it from the wall in order to use the other side. Keep your razor blade in its best condition by honing with this leather strop as needed.
Since 1919, Herold Solingen has been producing premium quality leather strops as razor honing tools. Made by Kohl & Laibach out of Solingen, Germany, these strops use a special Russian leather and a vegetable tanning process to create strops of unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.

Context: I bought an Ezra Arthur strop (English Bridle, 2.5 by 18") from a local shop. The phenomenal construction and quality of this strop, however, came at a price of $152 CAD plus tax. I had in mind to purchase this Herold Soligen strop as an economical replacement for the Ezra Arthur strop. Unfortunately, as satisfactory as the Herold Soligen strop is - it keeps my blade sharp and looks as though it will stand the test of time - I had grown accustomed to the level of fit and finish on the original strop I had purchased. I can't be bothered to go through a returns process with Fendrihan so I will be using the Herold Soligen strop chiefly as a travel item and potentially when I wish to give the Ezra Arthur strop a break.
