The Single Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strop (25-4080) and the Double Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strop (25-4081) are exclusively made by Shark Designs and are made to the highest standards each using a solid Beech wood platen that has high quality, specially treated, Vegetable Tanned leather on either one side, as in the 25-480 or on both sides of the platern as in 25-4081.
The overall size offers a more stable platform for stropping larger cutting tools such as Plane Blades, Chisels and other Woodworking equipment. The Double & Single Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strops can be mounted in a vice or other stabilising platform for absolute stability whilst stropping.
When using the Double Sider 8 by 3 Strop, one side can be treated with a high quality Honing Paste, such as Tormek, enabling you to polish off those micro-burrs at a much faster rate and allowing you achieve that little extra polished razor edge (When charged with a quality Honing Compound, such as Tormec Honing Paste, the strop will become a Honing Strop that has the potential to keep all of your cutting tools in tip top razor sharp condition for extended periods of time before the need to re-sharpen them on a Sharpening Stone.), whilst the other side can be kept free of the Honing compound and maintined as a normal strop.
The Single Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strop has a massive 8 Inch (204mm) long by 3 Inch (76mm) wide working surface, with specially treated leather facings that will enable you to maintain your razor sharp knife-edge with absolute ease, whilst the Double Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strop has double the working area.
The Shark Single and Double Sided 8 by 3 Inch Strops are both durable and dependable workshop strops and with proper care, either one will last you years and years.
Tools that have been sharpened using a Japanese Water Stone should be stropped to give a razor-sharp cutting edge. This will also ensure that your cutting tools stay razor-sharp for a lot longer.
