STROPT Razor Honing Pad
Handmade in the U.K.
What They Say:
Leather strops have been used since the dawn of time for helping to maintain the edge on blades. The leather helps to remove debris and smooth out the edge of the blade, keeping it sharper for longer. Our Razor Honing Pads use exactly the same principle to keep modern cartridge and disposable razors clean and sharp for three to five times longer. This ultimately helps to save money and reduce plastic waste.
What FGB Say: We came across the lovely Ricahrd (owner of Stropt) whilst searching for new gift ideas specifically For Him. However, these are not just exclusively for men (Sorry boys!)
These fantastic little 'honing pads' extend the life of any blade in any razor - including re-useable ones!
We're all very aware of the impact of plastics and most people are reducing, reusing and recycling where they can.....but we're all pretty guilty of using a 'disposable' razor - aren't we? Now, it's crazy to think we're just going to stop using disposable razors BUT, here's wehere you can 'do your bit'.
These FAB little leather stropt pads will extend your razor blade life by up to 5 TIMES! Wow, that's 5 TIMES less waste going to landfil. Just think if each of us used these, how many blades would we save from landfil each year? Got you thinking eh?
Directions For Use: To use, simply wet the leather on the pad and push the the razor firmly upwards five or six times times (in a reverse shaving action) to clean and maintain the blades. The leather softens slightly when wet ensuring close contact between the leather and the tips (fins) of the blades. It is a simple but time-honoured solution to a very modern problem. Voila - sharpened blades good as new!
You can do this each time your blades need sharpened for up to 5 times for effective sharpening.
Packaged simply in a fully recyclable brown kraft cardboard outer.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: These are handmade in the UK from natural vegetable tanned leather on a sustainable Bamboo base – Stropt only use sustainably sourced materials.
