This is a Dovo hanging strop that was made in Solingen, Germany. It is marked PRIMA RINDLETER. It is in excellent condition. It is very pliable, even surfaced, with no dings, cracks, cuts or age deterioration, etc. This strop measures 18" tip to tip by 1 3/4 wide and is 3/16" wide. It is a desirable size for traveling as it fits well in a suitcase, etc.
This strop will last a lifetime if taken care of. It has had the necessary amount of neatsfoot oil applied to it to preserve and maintain its pliability. It also has an application of Fromm's Strop Dressing applied to its surface. It is suggested to keep strop dressing on the strop surface. A 4 oz. bottle of strop dressing will last a lifetime. It will provide the necessary drag (very light resistance when stropping).
Just spread about 5 or 6 drops on the strop's surface and rub it in with the base of your palm when the surface loses its drag, about every 6 months. This will preserve and condition your strop and keep it stropping the cutting edge of your razor from shave to shave.
This strop has the attached separate woven linen strop as well. It is recommended to not use the linen side until you have become experienced at shaving and stropping, Then, if your curiousness gets the best of you, you will have some experience to guide you.
To prevent memory bends, this strop will be well packaged laying straight out lengthwise in carton box.
