Although Flexcut call this a knife strop, it can also be used for other edge tools just as effectively.
If a blade has already been honed, it will benefit from stropping to polish the steel further and give an extra degree of sharpness. Regular stropping of a blade means less honing which saves time and effort.
Supplied with a block of Flexcut Gold Polishing Compound for a razor edge. Size approx 200 x 50mm.

Works really wellOkay, its a piece of painted soft wood with a bit of cheap leather stuck to it, but it's brilliant. The gold polishing compound is superb, and it polishes edges to a mirror finish so quickly. I don't think the leather will last long, it's just not robust enough, but the principle is sound. After I have finished sharpening my chisels on a Japanese water stone, I polish the secondary bevel on the knife strop (in the honing guide) to get super sharp edges. The strop is a good bit of kit.
