The Kanayama #30000 leather strop is a fine craft that makes the perfect accompaniment to your straight razor. Made with a high quality cordovan horse leather, this strop effectively sharpens your blade, ensuring you the best wet shaving experience. The woven canvas clamped to the leather strop serves to warm your blade before you sharpen, a piece found accompanying only the most exquisite strops. The clamp leads to a metal snap hook, allowing you to attach the head of the strop to a firm surface while you sharpen. Keep this strop close by: it'll be there for you when things get dull.
Each Kanayama strop is identified by a model number that relates to the thickness of the leather. Ranging from 2196 to 80000, the 30000 strop is the perfect middle ground for many shavers. Thicker leather tends to have a coarse surface, which is hand ground for optimal smoothness. The thicker the strop, the more work required, and the more expensive the strop becomes.
Each of these incredible strops are handmade by one man in his workshop in Tokyo. Mr. Kanoyama, who famously misspelled his own name on his brand, has become world-famous for the outstanding quality of each hand-crafted strop. Rare and unique, these strops are a treasure in their own right.

I have a 50 000 version of this that I've had for years. By far the best strop I've ever owned. The canvas is a major selling point. It's very ridged yet perfect for alignment of your razor. The leather is the softest I've ever touched. This strop has extended the time between honeing. I used to hone every 4-5 months. Now I go over 8 and could still go longer. If you have a treasured razor treat it to this strop. Also. U don't need to dress this strop. Just run your hand over it before use and your oil from your hand is good enough. Buy this. Also... All of these strops have the same grit. The number on it is s grade for how thick and long the strop is. Lower numbers are 2-3mm thick. Higher numbers are 4-5mm. Higher numbers are made for professional barbers so the strop lasts longer. A low number will easily last you the rest of your life unless u cut it or let it dry out.
