Home WOODWORKING TOOLS LEATHER SHARPENING STROPS Connells of Sheffield C-STR-8-P Strop and Superfine Polishing Compound
This item comes complete with Superfine Polishing Compound and the stropA strop is a leather strip used to polish the edge of a chisel, plane iron or a knife. Stropping is the final part of the sharpening process in achieving a truly sharp edge. Stropping has always been the accepted way to finish a cut throat razor, guaranteeing the closest of shaves. Unlike honing which removes metal from the bevel, stropping burnishes away any microscopic metal strands clinging to the edge and polishes the bevel and back of the blade. Once the point where these two meet is as smooth as possible, the edge will be at its sharpest.
