Stropping board

Stropping board


An essential finishing tool in the art of knife sharpening.  Remember the old leather strop that barbers used to hone their straight razors to shaving sharpness?  This is the same principle--a wooden board with double-sided leather surfaces for stropping your knives after sharpening.  Stropping removes the tiny burr created by sharpening, to give your knife's edge a finishing polish and make it shaving sharp!  


The rough side can be improved in performance by applying a liquid or wax-based buffing or polishing compound (not included).




  • 11" x 1.5" Wooden board with lanyard hole
  • Rough side for initial polishing
  • Smooth side for final polishing
