◙ 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 we include our Green Compound to this kit.
◙ Using a Strop. Strops are frequently used with polishing compounds, the extremely fine abrasives that give a mirror polish to an edge. Start by applying it to the surface of the strop, no need to cake it on, just do it like coloring with a crayon. 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 Compound? Knife & tools enthusiasts prefer to use a compound, so we include our Medium Universal Green Compound
◙ 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 at any time.
◙ YOU CAN ALWAYS remove all types of residual grease, dirt or old compound with fine sandpaper & reload with new compound when needed.
