This piece dates to c. 1880. A beautiful green sheath surrounds the leather strop, leaving the faux ivory handle exposed. On the faux ivory handle is an image of a griffin. The strop itself is made of leather, with the top and bottom having a special red color. The strop would be used to sharpen a straight razor after each use, in order to keep the blade whetted. This strop is connected to the handle by a screw, which tightens or loosens by revolving the handle. The piece is in excellent condition, save for a slight partial hairline at the base of the handle, which is a result of age and supported by the ferril at the base. The item serves as a wonderful ode to a largely bygone era when straight razors were king.

L: 12 3/4 in. W: 1 1/2 in. H: 3/4 in.
