Excellent Product!

by for Handcrafted Leather Strop

I purchased this item for my husband because he is always complaining about the cost of razor blades. He noticed a difference right away! He usually only gets a couple shaves off of each blade and now he gets twice as many shaves...if not more. I have started using it for my razor blades as well and I plan on getting one for my son!

This is so easy to use and has done wonders for my knives. It renewed my razor that was way past it's useful life. Order the large, you won't regret it


As advertised!

Great item! I used on a week old razor, and it seemed to me that it worked even better than new. I ordered the smaller size in light of having to travel regularly, and was required to take a trip not a week after receiving my Razor Renew in the mail: glad that I did, and didn't even think about taking extra razors. Will pay for itself in 6 months, I'm sure.

Razor Renew - Sharpening Tool

About Razor Renew

Look Sharp

John Mecham was tired of spending money on pricey disposable razors. In his quest for a better option, he invented Razor Renew, a leather tool that manually sharpens and polishes not just razor blades but also knives, scissors and other cutting instruments.

John’s tool is similar to the leather strops that old-school barbers use to sharpen straight edge razors. In the same way, Razor Renew can smooth the burrs and scratches on a disposable razor, bringing it back to like-new sharpness. What’s different is the material. John found that cowhide, which is great for straight edges, is too harsh
for thin razor blades. He experimented with different leathers and different designs before settling on a two-sided combination: a suede side to sharpen and hone the metal, and a smooth leather side to smooth and polish. The short version is for blades less than 3 inches long, and the long version works with larger knives, scissors and other blades.

If you’re looking to get more use out of disposable razors, or you want a DIY tool to maintain your knives and scissors, Razor Renew is a handy solution. It’s made in the U.S., and it’s designed to last a lifetime if you care for it properly. John wouldn’t have it any other way.
