DIMENSIONS: 3” wide x 8” long. According to our experience these are correct dimensions for mostly blades.THICKNESS of the leather: As prove of authenticity of vegetable real leather the thickness may vary from 5/64” to 3/32”, but 90% of strops come in 3/32”= 2.2 mm approx, more than enough for honing. MDF block dimensions: 3” wide x 8” long x 0.75” high plus the attached leather makes a total height of 0.87” inches. Perfect height to hold in our hands or upon a bench, table or kitchen counter

EASY TO USE and MAINTAIN: Stropping is the act of aligning the edge of razors, chisels, tools & all kind of knives. Our Strops GIVE & MAINTAIN a polished sharp cutting edge.Our leather does not need maintenance, just a pass with fine sandpaper from time to time. Knives should be clean before stropping to avoid leaving a layer of dirt, clean the blade after stropping. It can be reloaded in the future, but it will be quite late, depending on the use.

Product Description

What is a Strop? A Leather Strop is used for the final stage of sharpening and to maintain a sharp cutting edge. The function is to polish the edge and work off any burr left behind by sharpening stones.The leather strop has been securely mounted to our MDF fiberboard wood rigid base and PRELOADED with our Green Compound while still warm.

◙ Using a Strop. Strops are frequently used with polishing compounds, the extremely fine abrasives that give a mirror polish to an edge. The surface of our strop is preloaded with our Green Compound and leveled later.Hold the bevel against the surface of the strop with LIGHT PRESSURE and move the blade away from the cutting edge. Turn the blade over and do the same on the other side.Never move the blade toward the cutting edge as it will cut into the strop resulting in dulling of the edge and damage to the leather.

◙ Why preloaded with Compound? Knife & tools enthusiasts prefer to use a compound, so we do that work for you.In a future if you need more Compound we recommend using our Medium Universal Green Compound or another quality one.

◙ Suede or smooth side? This Leather Strop Block comes with the suede side up. When using our suede strops, our especially short and pressed nap of the suede holds onto compound well allowing to be loaded easily when it is still warm.

◙ YOU CAN ALWAYS remove all types of residual grease, dirt or old compound with fine sandpaper & reload with new compound when needed, but it will be quite late.
