I’m barely a wannabe turner, and don’t carve at all. That won’t stop me, I think stropping an edge is good is the edge doesn’t have much wear….I’m thinking of my bench chisels. But lathe tools wear much faster, to the point that I would think (but do not know) that the edge is beyond being restored by stropping.
