I bought a Star Shaving Big Daddy strop and it came in yesterday. My previous practice strop I just hung on a coat hook on the back of my bathroom door. This one is very nice and I would like to hang it on my wall away from wet towels, etc. My question is what kind of device do you mount to the wall to hold your strops? If you can provide pictures that would be great. I don't know if just a small plain ring or hook or something better works.

I use these for attaching my hanging strop to.

Shooter, I have a standard and Spartan hook, purchased from the local hardware store, that I have screwed into the wood partition at the shave den sink. This is for stropping, after which I return the strop to the multi-hook strip behind the bedroom door. At one time I had a half a dozen strops and that's why so many hooks. I keep the strop in the bedroom away from the bathroom steam and take it off only when stropping the day's razor, or stropping after honing.

I have several strops. Some are permanently hooked on a few clothes hooks in the closet, but the ones I use regularly are in the bathroom closet, hung on the inside knob (why do they have a knob on the inside of the bathroom closet door? You'd have to be about 2" thick to fit in there with the shelves and all).

Any standard hook will do, but Jamie's suggestion looks great.

A Garment Hook will do the trick

Thanks for all of the replies. I looked on the internet and in the local hardware store and cannot find a Spartan hook to see what it looks like. With that in mind I love the fender hook that Jamie posted and will try to pick one up local from the boat store.

not to sound too ignorant... but what about a tie-rack? I imagine it could probable handle holding 3-6 strops (due to weight)

I just hand mine on a door knob and use it "horizontally", but my door knobs have "handles" as opposed to being circular.

you can hang it on a regular door knob using a piece of cord/rope and a clove hitch.

Plastic zip ties work well with hanging a strop on a door knobs as well.
