Leather Strop is an efficient way of final polishing a cutting edge using Edge Pro or Hapstone knife sharpener. 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 high-quality aluminum blank.

Game changer. I used to strop with an old fashioned strop and it worked good. This however is an absolute game changed. I have a very expensive straight razor that would not get sharp on my strop but i used this on my edge pro and it is once again shave ready. I wish i wouldve bought this sooner.
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.
