Razor Honing Pad

(9 customer reviews)

£11.95

Leather strops have always been used for maintaining the edge on blades – ask any carpenter, barber or woodsman. The leather helps to remove debris and smooth out the edge of the blade, keeping it sharper for longer. Our Razor Honing Pads use exactly the same principle to keep modern cartridge and disposable razors clean and sharp for three to five times longer. This helps to save money and reduce plastic waste.

They are handmade in the UK from natural vegetable tanned leather on a hardwood base – we only use FSC Iroko as it is sustainably sourced, extremely durable and highly resistant to water.

To use, simply wet pad and push the the razor firmly upwards five or six times times (in a reverse shaving action) to clean and maintain the blades. The leather softens and becomes malleable when wet and adopts the profile of the base of your razor, ensuring close contact between the leather and the blades. It is a simple but time-honoured solution to a very modern problem.

Just £11.95 including UK next day delivery.

Dramatically extends the working life of handheld razors by 3-5 times, saving money on blades.

    Bought two of these when you were in Newport last Christmas, best £20 I spent over the festive season

  2. Michael Laffey (verified owner)

    I bought 2 of these when you had a stall at Chichester. Now buying for someone. Love it!

  3. Rob Wilkinson

    Bought 3 from you off Petersfield market, gave 2 as Christmas presents.
    All 3 of us agree we’ve saved some money and a fair bit of hard plastic waste from going to landfill. I guess I’ll want a few more for Christmas presents this year. Hope you’ll have plenty of stock.

    My wife got me a Stropt as a gift before we went overseas. It has maintained the sharpness of my blade for months now. It’s a really neat little product, sustainably made and the result is fewer blades going to landfill, plus it’s saved me money on replacement blades. I’d recommend this product to anyone.

  5. David Crosby

    Love this product! My razors used to last less than a week but now stay sharp for well over a month.

  6. Ged McCarthy

    Received my Stropt as a present and love it, haven’t had to swap my razor head since using the Stropt, takes no time at all to use but add’s so much life to your blades.
    This is such a great product not only the environment but for your wallet

  7. Sophie Love

    Bought this for hubby for Christmas and he LOVES it and so do I! It extends the life of the blades and is making me more conscious about taking care of my razor, which means less landfill and smoother legs and underarms!

  8. Peter Morton

    I received my Stropt as a present three months ago. It is a beautifully designed and attractive product which is very light and simple to use and has prolonged the life of my blades by a factor of five.
    It pays for itself in a few weeks and is an environmental asset. A must for all wet shavers. My recommendation is, don’t hesitate, get one.

  9. Christian Wach

    Wow, Stropt is brilliant – I now regret throwing away all those “disposable” razors as I’d now have a lifetime’s supply!
