For final refining of the edges of carving tools and knives, many folk prefer to use the time honoured leather strop. This is the up-to-date version of the hand strop incorporating a handle for ease of use. As well as providing the large flat areas of the strop, the edges are profiled, one semi-circular and the other at a 45 degree angle and finished to a smaller radius to make it easier to work inside gouges similar areas. Overall length 375mm, 80mm wide. Strop face 230mm x 80mm approx. NB: Always drag the blade away from its cutting edge to minimise the risk of cutting the strop surface.
