    Vendor Description

    My light to medium draw Premium Natural Steerhide Strop proudly carries my Heirloom Razor Strop "Old No. 2" Logo
    The front component is a medium/heavy 8 to 9 oz. Premium Natural Steerhide leather that has been specially finished to provide a fast, light to medium draw. It is very firm with a nice smooth draw and although ready to use just as it arrives, the harder temper surface will break in nicely as it gets use . It is hand worked to give just the right amount of firmness and to help it resist cupping yet it retains a firm body. This leather component is joined at the top to a second component of my heavy, medium weave cotton (Standard) or  Genuine Flax Linen (+$20) and Dee Rings or Handles.

    Condition: hair moistened, tip out/root in

    HHT-0 - shave: The hair can be shaved immediately at the holding point. This is strictly spoken not a true HHT, but it does tell us that the edge is capable of shaving. [all other attempts must be made at least half an inch from the holding point]

    HHT-1 - violin : The hair doesn't cut, but it "plays violin" with the edge. This is due to the shingles catching the edge, but it's not sharp enough to penetrate. On a full hollow razor, a faint ringing sound can be heard. On all razors it can be felt with the fingertips that hold the hair.

    HHT-2 - split: When it is dragged across the edge, the edge catches the hair and splits it lengthwise.

    HHT-3 - catch&pop: When it is dragged across the edge a bit, the edge catches the hair and pops it. The severed part will jump away.

    HHT-4 - pop: The hair is popped immediately when it touches the edge. It still jumps away.

    HHT-5 - silent slicer: The hair falls silently as soon as it touches the edge.
