Produce the ultimate tool edge with our stops and compounds. Strop, is a sharpening tool used in woodworking and carving to maintain the razor-sharp edge of carving knives and other cutting tools. It consists of a leather surface affixed to a wooden base, and is designed for the process of stropping. Stropping is the technique of honing and polishing a blade's edge by dragging it gently across the strop's surface, which is typically coated with a fine abrasive sharpening compound. This action helps remove microscopic burrs and maintains the blade's keenness, resulting in a sharper, more refined cutting edge, making it an essential tool for woodcarvers and craftsmen seeking precision and sharpness in their work.
