    Haha was thinking about the money side as well.
    I just got home and thought about another Illinois strop I got that is in great condition. The other has the "fine weave linen". The color and overall appearance seems the same. It's now becoming a thing I have to look into. Like Matt1222 said it seems intentional, but why shipping,storage,performance?


    Enjoy the day,

    Oops, in that case I rescind my caveat. Not many of us want to have a dedicated strop pan, and I would not want my oatmeal to taste any worse than it already does.

    Very nice strop, I'm sure it will perform well! Any ideas as to it's age?

    I use Ballistol to treat & clean my shell strops or any leather really. It's great for so many thing in your home & shop.
