  • Just 5 Inches Long.

The Double-Sided Pocket Strop is a solid Beech wood base that has the finest quality, soft, supple leather on both sides of the strop. Made from the same, specially treated leather as a cutthroat razor strop, this small Double-Sided Pocket Strop serves equally well for stropping most edge tools in the field.
This handy, pocket sized strop, weighs in at just 34 grams (approx), and measures 5 inches (125mm) long by 1 inch (25mm) wide by just a 1/2 inch (13mm) deep (approx), giving a working surface that will keep your knife in a razor sharp condition. The Double-Sided Pocket Strop 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.
The Double-Sided Pocket Strop 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.
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.
