SKU: BK-090501 MPN: 90501
Boker 090501 Leather Strop. The Boker Streich-Riemen leather razor strop is high quality strop for sharpening and honing made of very dense yet flexible smooth Russian leather. A slate plate is mounted on the back for the flawless resharpening of any straight razor. Two long cavities below the leather provide the necessary flexibility for an effective and gentle honing of the thin razors. Also features a flexible wooden base. Dimensions (leather strop/slate): 1.625" x 15.75" x 1.25". Total length: 12.5". Includes a traditional slipcase. Made in Solingen Germany.
With a strop it's more like polishing the edge, getting rid of the microscopic imperfections, that get you a razor sharp edge. This is well suited for that purpose.
There is no skill involved; you can and should use a fair amount of pressure as you are pulling the knife and angle doesn't matter. However, it is *real* important that you pull the knife so the edge is dragging against the leather; if you do it the wrong way the edge will dig in.
One tip, this comes with a convenient handle and that should be used to carry this from place to place. When you are actually polishing a knife edge place the strop flat on a table. It makes the process a lot more effective and is safer too.
This is the 2nd Dragon I've ordered from OGK, and they never cease to impress me with their low prices, a website that's easy-to-navigate through, and their follow-through with each order.
