Leather Strop is an efficient way of final polishing a cutting edge. A leather strop enhances the cutting edge by correcting small nicks and smoothing grooves. The working surface is made of a very smooth high-quality cow leather mounted on a wooden base, with a comfortable handle. The strop is double-sided with no compound.
Gently slide the cutting edge over the strop, repeating 20-30 times for each side of the blade. The motion should avoid damaging the strop with the cutting edge.
