The key to maintaining a straight razor is to keep it sharp. Every stroke of a razor begins to blunt the edge and over time this can result in less than optimum performance. As a razor becomes blunter it can take more effort and more strokes to get the desired shave which is when cuts become more likely.
This Dovo Solingen strop is made from leather and allows you to keep your razor sharp after every shave. Stropping the blade re-aligns any blunt edges or indentations and is an important step to making sure your straight razor will last for many years.
This strop is made up of a fabric side and a leather side. The purpose of the fabric is to remove all the material that could potentially damage the leather first - such as coarse metal, left over soap particles, hair, etc. Then the leather does the bulk of the work on realigning the razor blade's edge.
Just pass your razor over the fabric side 20 times followed by the leather side 20 times before each shave to ensure it remains in top condition and razor sharp.
