Sharpening strop which we make especially for sharpening our shoemakers knife.

We start with a piece of hardwood which we mill to sit comfortably in the hand.

It has two sides, one covered in our speciality electrocut sharpening paper and the other in a piece of calf leather which we attach flesh side up. Then we impregnate the leather with jewellers rouge which is a mild abrasive for removing burrs from your knife. We also add some oil to lubricate the strop.

We use these strops for sharpening our knives. A really vital piece of kit.
