Why we do it?
Well with any profession motivation starts with money and we would be lying if we claimed that wasn't part of it. However, in the trade of barbering the are many more driving forces that inspire us at the Leather Strop to strive for something more. Barbering can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where tools and razors have been dated to the bronze age (around 3500 B.C.). Barbering was the foundation that formed modern much of modern medicine and surgery. The barber trade has such an in depth history with ties to many ancient civilizations and have been incremental at different points of human history. In a way, Barbers have had part to part in shaping the world we live in today. So aside from money...We are proud to do what we do. We may not get to influence the worlds as a whole but if your experience in our shop is exemplary then we feel we have honored the tradition.
