Cowhide Leather Strop is an efficient way of final polishing a cutting edge using guided knife sharpeners. A leather strop enhances the cutting edge by correcting small nicks and smoothing grooves.

The stropping medium is leather pad made of smooth high-quality cowhide leather mounted on high-quality aluminum with 45-degree bevels (Edge Pro form-factor) and color anodizing: black, deep ruby red, ocean blue, emerald green, sepia orange. Different colors of blanks will help to avoid mistakes of using wrong grit. The thickness of leather is approximately 4 mm, the thickness of aluminum blank is 3 mm.

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.
