Hand stropping removes the micro-burrs from the edge of a cutting edge that inevitably result from any grinding or honing process. Stropping is the final step usually skipped, which produces the razor like edges that denote a really sharp plane blade, chisel or knife. And the reason that it is skipped is the lack of a good stropping surface.

Leather surfaces traditionally make the very best Strops and this Kit includes a stiff-backed wood frame, two special (3 x 12") leather surfaces fixed to wooden paddles fitted with rare-earth magnets that clip in the frame. The leather surfaces are used sequentially: initial stropping with the napped (rough, gold or gold/grey colored) leather and finish stropping with the smooth leather (brown). Extra napped leathers are available if you wish to use different honing pastes. Complete instructions are provided.

To get an exceptional edge for fine knives, an optional premium English Bridle Leather surface is also available for super finishing. This is a thoroughly professional kit and will provide results that you will find astonishing. Highly recommended for the demanding tool lover.

    Michael, 7/6/2015 I returned this item, not what G-Wade normally has for sale. I was not impressed with it at all!
  • The Cutting Edge

    Charles, 7/4/2015 This truly is the cutting edge of strops. I was delighted to have and use this fine device. Well worth its price, I am able to draw out the finest edge of the tools I use, thanks to this.
  • Beautifully Sharp

    Charles, 6/12/2015 Sharpening is a continual activity of the crafts person. If we want to do quality work we should sharpen to the ultimate that we can. Spending time in the process with high quality honing strops like these makes for a better experience and permits a refined edge. I am very happy with them, they work for me.
