Item details

TWO (2) SIDED LEATHER STROP BLOCK FOR SHARPENING KNIFES, RAZORS, TOOLS ETC. I USE ONLY 8-9OZ VEG TANNED HEAVY DOUBLE SHOULDER LEATHER (ONE SIDE HAS FUZZY SIDE UP AND THE OTHER HAS SMOOTH SIDE UP) THAT IS BONDED VERY SECURELY TO A SOLID PIECE OF MAPLE USING AN EXTREMELY STRONG ADHESIVE. STROPS ARE A SIMPLE YET EFFECTIVE TOOL FOR MAINTAINING AND REVIVING AN EDGE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR LOOKING FOR A SPECIFIC SIZE PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME, NORMALLY SHIPS OUT WITHIN 1-3 BUSINESS DAYS. TRACKING WILL BE SENT AFTER ITEM SHIPS.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE PROCESS OF MAKING EACH STROP. FIRST I START WITH A NICE SOLID PIECE OF MAPLE AND THEN RIP / CUT IT TO LENGTH. ALL SIDES ARE SANDED USING MULTIPLE GRITS OF SANDPAPER (THE FINAL BEING 320). NOW FOR THE LEATHER, I USE THE BEST VEGETABLE TANNED LEATHER THAT I CAN GET, FOR THE FLESH / FUZZY SIDE EACH PIECE IS HAND WORKED / SOFTENED AND THEN TRIMMED TO LENGTH TO ENSURE THE OPTIMAL STROPPING SURFACE. THE RESULT IS A SHORT DENSE NAP THAT IS BUTTERY SMOOTH. FOR THE OTHER SIDE I USE THE SMOOTH SIDE UP AS IS AND SELECT THE BEST PIECES OF LEATHER THAT HAVE LITTLE TO NO DEFECTS. THE EDGES OF THE LEATHER ON BOTH SIDES ARE BEVELED USING A # 2 BEVELING TOOL. BONDING THE LEATHER TO THE WOOD, FIRST I SCORE THE TOP AND BOTTOM OF THE WOOD AND THEN APPLY A VERY STRONG CONTACT ADHESIVE. THE STROP IS THEN PLACED INTO CLAMPS FOR 24HRS UNTIL THE ADHESIVE IS CURED. UNDER NORMAL USAGE AND PROPER CARE THIS STROP SHOULD LAST MANY YEARS.

    Have recently purchased some high carbon Japanese kitchen knifes. This strop did a great job putting a finished edge on them all. Good quality item.

    Well made strops with both fuzzy and flat sides glued to a very flat board for even surface contact with the blade edge. Easy and informative communication with seller before sale. This guy knows his sharpening stuff. I am a happy camper with years of stroping to come.
