STROPPING 101

WHY USE A STROP?

Stone Sharpening Leaves a Burr

When a knife is sharpened by a sharpening stone it leaves a burr on the edge of the blade.  

Stropping Removes the Burr

The act of stropping - or running the blade across a strop - can minimize and even remove the burr completely to give a much sharper edge. 

Stropping Maintains An Edge

When a strop is properly used to maintain an edge it will reduce the frequency of needing to sharpen on a stone.
