Thiers-Issard Double Sided Paddle Strop made in France.
This strop comes with two grades of leather, one brown which provides an excellent finish to your razor. One slightly coarser grade black, which is used to clean and polish the edge prior to finishing on the brown side. The black side can also be used with sharpening paste. The hollowed ‘spring cut’ body design allows for progressive resistance to pressure. Finished in Red Mahogany wood.
A paddle strop has some benefits over a traditional hanging strop. The leather on a paddle strop is always held perfectly flat as it is attached to a flat surface. Hanging strops can become concave or convex which results in uneven pressure on the edge of the razor and can lead to premature wear and dull areas on the razor edge.
A paddle strop is more versatile as it can be used anywhere. A hanging strop requires an attachment point to anchor one end of the strop while tension is applied to the strop to keep it flat. It is much easier to adjust the height of a paddle strop so the stropping motion is carried out at the most comfortable height for you. The anchor points available to you can often be set a little to high or low for the ideal stropping height when using a hanging strop.
