#####the horse hide is natural material, and there is no exactly the same horse hide. Kanoyama strop Co. has experienced hardship to find thick high quality horse hide for many years. When Mr. Naomi want to make thickest Cordovan strop (5mm thickness product like #90000), the original horse hide has to have at least 12mm before the manufacturing processes. The thickness of the Cordovan strop is one of quality indicator, and it is not only one determination of the quality. Mr. Naomi decides the quality of the strop in each model of the strops such as the thickness, the color, the softness, smoothness of the strop, the total quality of the strop, etc.
I guess the strop quality is decided the total quality of the strop instead of just the thickness of the strop, therefore, the thickness of the Cordovan strop is just one of the factor to determine the number of the strops.######
The company name is Kanoyama Co, but it is stamped Kanayama. They made the wrong spelling on the stamp and used it, and the company had been known as Kanayama already, so they could not correct it anymore. They still use the wrong spelling stamp now.
*************Cleaning and maintenance Kanoyama Cordovan Razor Strop:
What we should do is to use clean cotton towel or high quality paper towel which is tough for water soaking in lukewarm water, and it should be not too much wet, but not too dry the towel. And then, we wipe the strop the front side of the strop until little before the lukewarm water going through all the way to the back side, and then it makes dry naturally. That is the way what we make the strop making shinny and smoother. According to Mr. Naomi, we should not apply on any oil on Cordovan strop. The oil collects dust, and it makes losing smoothness on the Cordovan strop, and it makes not as the finishing quality strop anymore. ****************
