Last week, Richard sent me a message, offering a strop he had that really doesn't get used. He had noticed that i had just purchased my first straight razor, courtesy of Yohann, (thank you again for the Wapi), and just wanted to gift it to me if I'd like. Steelman passed the strop onto him, as it was no longer being used, due to an issue that prevented him from straight razor shaving. Being such a gentleman, Richard already notified Steelman about me, as to not really become a regifter, but because it wasn't really being used in his collection.

I greatly accepted, as i had been trying to figure out what kind of strop to get and beginning to research the best way to go about getting one. I'm still fairly new to this great manly ritual, so i needed to do some research on what to get when i was able too. Well, what was sent to me was an English Bridle IV Strop from Straight Razor Designs, and it is very handsome!

Richard, thank you for this beautiful strop! You are too awesome! From all of your advice, and all of the wonderful photos you take with your matching collection of razors and brushes, you always lift me up! You need to know, that you just put a life longer in my family for the next few decades and many more after! With the exception of a few more razors that I want to collect, this pretty much finishes what i wanted for my son! He'll be the one to use my shaving gear, and carry on the tradition that i started in the family for his children and so on. Anything else will be additions or variations of things that i have.


And thank you to Steelman for also playing a part in this mighty gesture. Y'all are wonderful!

welcome to the Gentlemans Club. We are here to look out for each other.

That is a very good quality strop. Take your time learning with it so not to nick up such a beauty and it will last you for years to come. I also order a Black Latigo from SRD and it is fantastic!
