Pros: Overall Quality, Durability
Not just another piece of leather!
Handle is very comfortable and fills my hand nicely. All stitching is 1st class. The ring/bracket is not secured to strop. This allows it to act as a tensioner for both sides (leather and linen)to keep every stroke smooth and flat. The leather is akin to a fine felt in texture with great draw and feedback. The width is also great helping me to repeat an X-pattern motion as in honing (consistency is key to sharpness). The linen side is just right to prep a slightly dull blade for stropping. I do not use abrasive pastes on either side of this strop, only Dovo white dressing paste on the linen, and yellow conditioner on the leather side. Love this strop!
