    I liked the strop, I knew it can't be cordovan and, indeed, it is not. But this wasn't the issue. Simply compare the pictures from ebay listing with what I received !
    No need for comments ! Not mentioning the craftmanship - the pictures speak for themselves. I contacted him to send it back and get a refund

    I have to admit that when I first looked at it I thought "not a bad looking strop for $45" but then i read on and I am glad that you Gents gave insight, I started with a GD straight and what resembled a strop and both are long gone and now I look back and see a huge difference as to what I satrted with and what I use now.

    Did what i start with shave ok, yes it did but not in comparison to what I use now and i am guessing part is because of experience and a big part is what razor and strop are used.

    Welcome to the forum. I would be suspect of a new $45 cordovan strop. That said, I bought a Tony Miller bridle strop for $50, and it is a beautiful piece of work. Not cordovan, but certainly will get the job done.
