Yesterday I was in a small shop and I saw a razor strop that was labeled (by the manufacture) as buckskin. It had no name on it. Just "Made of Genuine Buckskin U.S.A." and it was considerably thinner than most strops so, I'm inclined to believe them. I've heard of using pigskin, cowhide, and even exotic critters like elephants and giraffes, but never buckskin. Has anyone else heard of such a thing? I didnít get it (way overpriced) but it got my curiosity peaked.
Please feel free to comment on this subject if you have ever heard of this, or if you have an opinion on it, or if you have questions. Iíve talked to a few other straight razor users and they were just as curious and perplexed as me.
