    Vendor Description

    My light to medium draw Veg Tanned Horsehide Strop made from Genuine Horween Horsehide proudly carries my Heirloom Razor Strop "Horsehide" stamp. 

    The front component is a firm, medium temper 6 to 9 oz. piece of Premium Horween Horsehide leather that has been specially finished with a semi-matt, eggshell type surface. It gives a light to medium draw and is quite firm both in stiffness and surface hardness. This would be the equine equivalent to my Premium Steerhide but with an increased surface temper or firmness. 

    These nature of these horse butt sections tends for them to have an interesting pattern of shallow range marks and/or a beautiful quilted pattern towards the ends. They will have a more vintage, rustic look to them than my other leathers and one that I find quite pleasing to the eye. 

    7/13/2021: Being natural, un-dyed hides these can range slightly from the image shown being a bit lighter or darker but a tan color overall.

    This leather component is joined at the top to a second component of either my heavy, medium weave cotton or Genuine Flax Linen (+$20) each with its own Dee Ring or Handle grip. Leather caps and handles are made from a smooth black Latigo for a nice rich contrast with the russet tan of the horsehide.

    These feature either Dee Ring Grips (Standard) or my optional Heavy Weight Leather Handles (+$17) with a 24" (D-Rings) or 29" (Handles) overall length and a 3" wide x 17 1/2" long stropping surface. All strop edges are rounded, back beveled and beaded. The handles and trim pieces are also rounded, back beveled and burnished for a uniform appearance. The optional handles feature heavy weight leather to add stiffness and increase durability and all metal hardware is of heavy weight and nickel plated.

    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.
