What is The Strop?
Good question. The Strop comes from a time long ago, when barbers roamed the earth and dinosaurs needed a hot, close shave every few weeks. Every barber uses a strop for his straight razor to keep it in peak condition. But now man uses disposable blades and dinosaurs are extinct. There have been a lot of changes recently.
This is where we come in. We’ve created a strop for the modern disposable razor. It keeps your blades aligned and in great condition, rolls into a perfect travel size for the guy-on-the-go, and looks great on a towel bar. We’ve used high quality, american-made raw denim and premium leather, accented with brass studs and hand-stitched in the US of A. By using the strop, you’ll get 3-5x more use out of your razors, which saves you time and money.
How does The Strop work?
Razor blades naturally get out of alignment during the shaving process. This causes irritation and “pulling” of the hairs on your face. This is the point in which most people will throw out their razor and grab a new one.
However, The Strop works by realigning the blades within the cartridge. Thus, you get the feeling of a new razor for every shave.
Will the strop work for my razor?
The strop works with any disposable razor or razor cartridge, women’s or men’s. This includes, but isn’t limited to, Gillette, Schick, Venus, Bic, Harrys, Dollar Shave Club, and most private label blades that you would find in your local pharmacy. The strop is not designed to work with straight razors or safety razors.
At ShaveFace, we’re trying to do our part for the planet. Even if, at first, we can save just a few of your razor blades from making their way into landfills and oceans, we hope to widen our impact to eventually reduce each user’s carbon footprint and lessen the amount of blades used per year. Just by making a few small changes to your daily routine, we hope to make the world a little, teensy bit brighter.
So, I’m getting a cool strop out of this deal. What are you guys getting?
We’re so glad you asked! With this initial funding, we’ll be able to produce and purchase in bulk, with the savings being passed along to our customers. It’s a way to keep prices down and fill orders quickly and efficiently. You’re part of history in the making.
If you guys can help us get there, we will be using that money to introduce you to a few people who mean a lot to us. We want to create a video that will introduce our team to our consumers, and our consumers to the hard-working Americans that make our leather and denim. Our stretch goal will help cover production costs (hiring a videographer & editor, etc) for the first professionally produced video content specific to our website. We want to make sure that the consumers get to meet the whole ShaveFace Team, from the founders and the designer to the manufacturer and the great guys who source our raw materials. Being able to visit these different people and conduct professionally filmed interviews will serve as a small window into what it means to be “Made in the USA.” Let us take you along for the ride.

Risks and challenges
We are prepared to start full-scale production of The Strop as soon as this campaign closes. This being said, any number of issues or delays could occur in a process as complicated as manufacturing a product. We have been extremely selective in choosing every single partner that we work with to help ensure that there will be no setbacks, and that we deliver The Strop to you on time or (gasp!) maybe even early.
Quality control is extremely important to us. We have been meticulous in every step of our process, from prototype to full-scale production, to guarantee that each strop is of the very highest, produceable quality. If anything does occur, we promise to keep you as updated as we are and deal with problems individually as they arise.
But enough about us. Let’s get back to you and your well-groomed manbeard. Head back up to the top of the page and grab a strop to see what all the hype is about. You’ve got nothing to lose but the stubble.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
