The Strop

  • A 19 1/2 x 2 Inch (495 x 51mm) working surface.
  • Use both sides of the hand razor strop.
  • Made from specially treated high quality leather.
The Field Strop ‘Deluxe’ is hand-made from a single piece of the finest quality, soft, supple leather, which has been specially treated to enable you to maintain a perfectly stropped razor sharp edge with absolute ease.

The Field Strop ‘Deluxe’ is 24 1/2 Inches (622mm) long, 2 Inches wide (51mm) and 1/8 Inch (3.5mm) thick, with a solid brass ‘D’ ring at each end. The solid brass ‘D’ rings are hand sewn to the Strop by two tough leather tabs that allow the Field Strop ‘Deluxe’ to be attached to a hook, nail or tree branch etcetera, at one end, whilst adding tension to the strap by pulling with two or three fingers through the ‘D’ ring at the other.

The Field Strop ‘Deluxe’ can be treated with either a good quality Honing Paste, or a high quality Jewellers Rouge, enabling you to polish off any micro-burrs that often occur after sharpening a cutting tool. Although applying a Honing Paste, or Jewellers Rouge, allows the stropping process to be dramatically speeded up, it will none the less convert a Strop from a normal Razor Strop to a Honing Strop.

The Field Strop ‘Deluxe’ is both durable and aesthetically pleasing, and comes with the ‘Shark’ logo embossed onto it, making it a very special item exclusive to Shark Designs. With proper care, it will last you years and years.

Any cutting tools that have been sharpened using the Japanese Water Stone - Combination 1000/6000 Grit, the Japanese Fine/Polishing 4000 Grit Water Stone or the Fallkniven Diamond/Ceramic Whetstone 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.

More information about the reasons why you should ‘Strop’ your cutting tools can be found on our Articles & Tips section.
