Dovo 183 Large Hanging Strop with Leather on one side & Linen on other side, Germany. The Dovo 183 strop features their wonderful Russian leather, which is taken from a slice below the outer skin. It has a wonderful velvety smooth surface and is more consistent then the outer later of leather more common to lesser prices strops.
The Dovo hard linen surface is attached to both the handle and the leather, forming a loop, guaranteeing the ability to pull taught while not needing an extra handle. This is an elegant solution and cuts down on the overall weight of the strop. Dovo treats the tightly woven linen with their white paste at the factory adding a bit of a sharpening effect. Make sure to remove the paste from your blade before stropping on the leather.
Includes nickel plated swivel hardware for hanging and an integrated padded handle.

The size is for both straps. Very small. Also if ordering from Canada watch out for dollar exchange as was not factored in when total stated at check out nor was the addition 25 for customs. Ended up be closer to 150 vs 75.
This item is VERY nice and the craftsmanship is apparent the first time you take it out of the box. I had a little regret paying 75.00 for this until it arrived. Worth every penny, and perhaps a bit more. Thanks!!
This is an excellent product at an excellent price. The price was also excellent considering it can last many years.
Arrived quickly and works exactly as advertised, can't ask for more than that.
At last, I'm almost there. After 6 weeks of straight razor shaving I can almost get as close a shave as a Mark 3. Oso has come through again. This purchase, my Dovo 183 strop arrived in 3 days - not bad, from Southern California to Houston. As a novice I can use all the help I can get. Oso has been just that, a big help. I can be a bit anal when it comes to any product I buy. I want the very best quality I can get . Oso has just that . Not only quality items, but also @ the best price!
Thanks Again Oso!
This is a great strop and it shows on your shave. I have gotten far closer shaves since switching to this strop versus the cheapie that I bought when I first started straight shaving. Spend the extra money and get a good one like this.
