Is the normal type of tool strop with leather laminated to both faces of a quality hardwood block, these are great for bringing many types of cutting tool to a nicely honed razor sharp edge, great for crafters ,leatherworkers, basically anyone that uses a knife or cutting tool that needs a razor edge.

Type B :
Made to the same specs as type A the only difference being is i have rounded the edge of the block and carried the leather around the curve. This is so you can sharpen hook blades and is also very good for taking the burr from the back of curved chisels(see pictures).i use hook blades all the time and could never find a decent way to give me a satisfactory edge , this normally ended up being a blade replacement , now one blade lasts a very long time.
