This strop is made by Harold and Saxon Toolworks in Australia. It is made from premium outback hardwood for stability, complete with a brass retainer and special selected murray grey yearling hide (a very fine grain suede). The premium strop is finished to a higher level of finish and detail. The timber you get is a lucky dip from timbers such as bull oak, ringed gidgee, mulga etc. Please email us if you would like a specific timber.
