What's new

New Heirloom 3” in Black Latigo just arrived. Tony’s work in incredible.

Ordered another 3” Heirloom Strop after seeing how nice the first one I bought was. The only difference between the two is the type of leather; same hardware/handles/linen…. I forget the specific value/number, but I opted for the thickest/heaviest leather again.

I may buy one more eventually to try the lighter leather that is more flexible. I can’t imagine that I’ll like it more than my current ones. My stropping technique utilizes a decently taut strop so a more flexible leather would just mean I would need to pull/lean harder to achieve the same tension.

Super fast shipping and awesome communication as usual. I’m not usually the type of person who celebrates brands, but must say that it doesn’t get any bettthan this. If you are looking to get a high quality strop (handmade or not, these are handmade though by one guy in Maryland, and he can correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty certain they are all made to order, so he builds your strop immediately after receiving the order.) that has all the bells and whistles, and will also last you a lifetime+, Tony Miller’s Heirloom Strops is a no brainer.

I thought that my Illinois Strop was so nice back when I got it. The he handle on it (in the leather part) snapped in half after a few years. These strops put my old Illinois to shame. The handles on these are absolute units.

Anyway, just wanted to share some pics of my new one alongside his elder brother. That and say thanks to Tony for coming through again!

Speaking of horse butts…
Glad you like it Matt. I do basically make these to order. In my spare time I pre-cut the strop bodies so I can grade them and know what inventory I have to offer. I do then edge, stamp, finish and assemble each based on what options one may want and occasionally have pieces that are heavier, or lighter than normal that I can offer as in your case.

Enjoy it!
