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.

  • Dream Strop

    Peter Nowlan, 1/24/2019 I sharpen knives professionally and a good leather strop is an integral part of my process. I’ve had many over the years but this is my absolute favourite. It’s a very high quality product, well made and it does exactly what I want it to do.
  • Lesson learned

    Thomas, 12/8/2018 Haven’t got to use it yet. Need to get some paste which the video clearly states is in the kit but it doesn’t come with it. So lesson learned be leery of what you order from here and best to ask before ordering to see what’s included in kits because they do not give clear info on their products descriptions.
  • Happy in the end

    Ryguy, 6/22/2018 I'm rewriting a review because I've changed my mind about this strop. Initially I was happy with the strops base, and with the included regular leather strip + additional nap leather I ordered. They were very nice... However, the couple bridle leathers (which I bought it mainly for) came pretty beat up. I'm not sure if they were damaged in storage or shipping or what but they were quite damaged, and I must've been in a bad mood because I immediately wrote out a bad review for the bridle leather additions. I talked to Garrett wade though... and they exchanged them for me and the bridle leathers were quite nice the second time around. Now I'm very happy and I feel a bit silly for jumping the gun. Stuff happens... and in the end it wasn't a bad product but just damaged, and they made it right... The whole kit is reaaally nice now, and the bridle leather that I really wanted is very smooth and functional. A huge upgrade from my old strop. I doubt I could be any happier with any other strop. Gotta also thank Garrett wades customer service for putting up with my knee jerk, unfriendly, response. I feel better now!

  • Stropping board and english leather strop.

    Richard , 11/14/2017 The magnets hold the strop well, and there is little movement of strop on the handle.
  • stropping board

    dave, 2/27/2017 quality product , and it works
  • No surprises

    J.C., 1/25/2017 As usual the products sold by GW are first rate and always as described. This tool is an addendum to my sharpening schedule. I've used strops to put the finish on the finished edges of my woodworking tools as well as my finer kitchen knives and sometimes even my pocket knife gets the treatment as well. If you've never stropped, you don't know what you're missing.
  • Unique set

    Oskar Muriel, 1/21/2017 Good set but would be better if pastes were included.
  • The Cutting Edge

    Charles, 7/5/2015 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, 6/13/2015 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.
