Hi-

I am looking for some information on a C-Mon Hand-Finished Broke-In strop.  The writing on the bottom states as follows: "Finest Selected Hand Finished."  There is a number 410 also at the bottom.  The linen strop says fine weave linen finish.  There is a red diamond on the top of the leather strop next to the writing.  Anyway, I am wondering whether this is a horsehide shell or some other material.  I'm also wondering whether it is one of the better vintage strops out there.  I can pick it up for about $50.00, and it appears to be in pretty good shape.

Thanks.

John

I think it may be a older strop and was sold or manufactured by Peter J. Michels from NY.  Maybe late 30's to early to mid 40's when it was made.  As long as it has been taken care of it should serve you well.
