Hi LJ!

Are you interested in achieve a perfect sharpening on your knives or cutting tools? I’ll show how to make a DIY 2 faces leather strop or razor strop with a handle for stropping. I’m doing this with handtools, so it’s an easy project that everyone can do. Just follow the steps I show on the video and enjoy your scary sharp knife.

I hope you enjoy this video. Please, feel free to make your comments.

Great idea. I have no trouble getting my knives extremely sharp, but there is always room for improvement, and I think said improvement will involve a strop. This looks really easy to make and well worth the time. I’ve always wanted to try a strop but never had the chance. Thanks for sharing this with us.

My pleasure! I was like you in the past, very satisfied with the cutting of my tools after the 8000 grit wet stone. Now I’m a step beyond with the strop. I encourage you to do the same.


Nice project.
