Razor Honing Pad
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.

• Thick leather strop for cleaning and maintaining a sharp edge on all types of cartridge and disposable razors.
• Dramatically extends the working life of handheld razors by 3-5 times, saving money on blades.
• It is estimated that 2 billion razors are discarded every year in the US alone! We reckon that must mean at least 10 billion are discarded globally every year which is an awful lot of unnecessary plastic waste!
