Leather Sharpening Strop & Metal Polishing Compound

Leather Sharpening Strop & Metal Polishing Compound


Ref: C-STR-8-P 

Price: 16.20 Inc VAT / 13.50 Ex VAT

Double-sided leather strop 205mm x 67mm, with superfine metal polishing compound.

A strop is a leather strip, ideal for polishing the edge of a chisel, plane iron or knife. Stropping is the final stage of the sharpening process and achieving a truly sharp edge. Unlike honing, which removes metal from the bevel, stropping burnishes away any microscopic metal strands from the edge, and polishes the bevel and back of the blade. This leather strop is hand-made in the UK, using quality UK leather.

Customer Reviews

  A really good product  This is a well made product that comes with full instructions and works well. My only reservation is that the base could have better non-slip feet.  (07/07/2015) Mel Bayliss - Plymouth

  For Keen Sharpeners.  Normally I sharpen up to a fine stone but this allows you to give the blade that final touch. The only improvement would be for the base to be heavier.   (22/11/2013) Michael Ward - Winkleigh
