Strop - Razor Strop Leather - 200mm x 70mm

This leather strop is made from English Cowhide, 5mm thick, and is taken from the "bend" of the cow which is the best part for producing strops

This leather forms a robust strop that will not round or dub your blade's edge. It's supplied loose in readiness for gluing to either a flat or curved timber substrate, depending on whether it is to be used for chisel and plane irons or carving tools.

In our workshop we glue this leather to English Sweet Chestnut, fine side out using Titebond III, and once the glue has cured we dress the strop with baby oil to open the pores in readiness for impregnating with Veritas Honing Compound.  Redress the strop ever couple of months with the baby oil to cleanse any metal contamination away before re-charging with the honing compound.

The strop is an essential for edge retention; it's a traditional sharpening tool which is very clean and left on the bench top for improving the edge of chisels or plane blades during daily use.  It's very quick and clean to use rather than going back to the messy full procedure of re-sharpening.

Whatever sharpening medium you use, you may finish off by stropping to remove the very fine wire edge.
