With the DOVO 185 razor strop, you complete two important steps simultaneously. With the slightly rougher cotton side, you first prepare your straight razor for the leather. You also can use this side to condition the blade with a fine abrasive paste. Then you work your straight razor as usual on the leather side and your DOVO razor is as sharp as it was on the first day of use!
For strops, Dovo exclusively uses vegetable-tanned cow leather. This technique, also known as "old tanning", prepares the leather for optimal use as a strop. Dovo treats their leather this way to ensure that it has no scarring or unevenness making it perfectly suited for stropping straight razors with its supple surface.
