Suehiro Leather Knife Strop & Polishing Kit Short KSW-310


For those who seek the finest long-lasting sharpness, please use this product for finishing. With sticky stainless steel knives and the like, even finishing whetstones cannot smoothen the very small rough edges on the blade. This is where the knife strop shows its true value. By polishing the edge of the blade against this leather strap, you will be able to cleanly take off the burrs (the small ridges) and bring back its luster. To use it, spread the green stick (abrasive) on the back side of the leather and sharpen, before finishing with the front side. For those who want the finest long-lasting sharpness, this is an excellent tool for finishing.
