Is it a premium product? No. Is it good enough to strop a razors on to get it ready for your daily shave? Certainly. I'd use any of our strops on any of my razors, the result is not quite as good as with a premium product, but still good enough to get your razor zoned in for a great shave, and also a great tool to have around when honing your own razors on whetstones. If you want to get into straight razor shaving as cheap as possible this strop with canvas backside is perfect, if well cared for this strop will be of service to its master for many years to come. Use the canvas side to strop a few strokes prior to doing laps on the leather, you'll have to start slow on this one and learn the X-stroke technique, but done slowly it is quite simple to master. It is wise to get a hang on your stropping routine with this strop before investing in a premium quality strop, damage to one of those will have you cry your eyes out! Size 660 mm x 50 mm inclusive of the fittings, the stropping surface is approximately 500 mm.
