After posting my straight razor and sharping stone, I thought I should also show my Razor Strop.
The strop is the final step in keeping your blade razor sharp.

This one is a vintage one, from The Carborundum Company from Niagara Falls New York. It's actually two pieces of leather. One with a built in "grooves" and on as a finish. So you could sharpen your blade with just this strop if your razor is not super dull.
These were usually made of horsehide and have a red finish on them. Most all razor strops are Red.

The old metal holder.

If you're going to try shaving with the straight razor, you need one of these. Plus they're cool Vintage Gear for Guys!
