 SWEET, SUPPLE, & READY FOR USE!! If you're a collector of vintage strops or simply enjoy the feeling of stropping a straight razor on high quality leather then this beaut is for you.  It is hard to explain the wonderful feeling of a razor gliding across well prepared high end Russian leather.  This PearlDuck strop is an excellent for both the beginner and seasoned straight razor enthusiast. The heavy leather and 2 1/2" width make this strop very comfortable to strop on.  The leather is excellent quality, very supple, and has a amazingly smooth draw with great feedback.  This leather has a significant amount of thickness to it, approximately 4.5mm, which can be seen in photo #10.  The stropping action is not overly fast like many of the other older model strops. The sound produced when swiping your honed razor across the leather is equally as enjoyable.  From the top of the hanging hardware clip to the bottom handle it measures 26" in length.  It has a width of 2 1/2 inches.  It has stainless metal hardware that has been lightly polished to a gorgeous mirror finish and clearly stamped on the clasp is Germany.  It features a clip snap above a loop for easy hanging and removal and spins freely to make swapping from the leather to linen fast and simple.  There is also a large nut with notched knurling for easy removal for switching the linen sides back in forth; if one desires to past the back side of the linen with chromium oxide. The linen and leather are both in mint condition with no nicks or cuts.  I have been rubbing this strop by hand daily for the past month; the leather feels wonderful.  The back side of the leather has a cross hatched pattern making it an excellent option for applying the paste as well.  The Linen is very high quality 2-ply linen created by Hess Hair Milk Lab, out of St. Paul, Minn.  Often times lesser quality strops used single ply linen, this beauty has a seamless 2-ply strip of linen that resembles a hose and is infused with Paraffin Wax to ensure that it holds true to its shape.  Stamped in silver at the top of the linen is "THE NEW HARRINGBONE WEAVE", this linen is very flexible and soft.  The linen is weaved in a zig zag pattern, very similar to a HerringBone Necklace, making this linen extremely durable.  As far as I can tell, paste has not been applied to this strop, the backside of the leather does have a reddish tint.  I am unable to verify if this is the intended coloring or the remnants of paste.  However, if you would like to have a thin layer of Chromium Oxide(.5 Micron) paste applied to the underside of the linen or leather, I would be happy to do so at no charge to you.  The original silver stamping at the leather top and bottom handle is still in tact and visible, but lightly worn at the bottom portion of the leather where your hand holds it taught while stropping.  This will, without a doubt, make a wonderful strop, both for collecting and daily use.
