If you expand your list to 10+...I'm in.
Mike @Makael ,Tecate can have mine...if he wants.
That is very kind of you, but keep your #1 spot.

I didn’t use to strop that often. Since getting a small strop with compound already on free with a knife purchase, I strop more often, especially on frequently used blades.
I have 4 address's so far. If your reading this please forward me your shipping info to-

I believe very much in using the strop to complete my sharpening. It takes all the burrs away and shows the edge for what it is. If both sides are equal in degrees you should get a very sharp edge from tip to tang. Mine is store bought but boots and belts work in a pinch.
I consider myself to be a decent, but not great sharpener. I've never stropped with an actual strop, I strop on cardboard and paper. It's definitely worthwhile, even on a less finely honed edge. I paper stropped a tiny little imported Buck 325 after applying a 750 grit edge, and it grabs arm hairs. On a bigger knife, I stropped a 220 grit edge and it cuts like a ripsaw and has a decent bit of push cutting ability. Carbon and steels similar to 420HC respond really well to stropping.
That might depend on how much one wears the blade down before stropping.
A clean Buck 120 .
I'm too late for the 10 list, but how large a piece of leather do you need? I've been looking at the strops on Ebay, but it seems most of them coming from China would be too small to work easily with.
Growing up, I remember my dad stropping his knife on his leather belt. Of course he never used any sort of compound on his belt
Sent you my address. Thanks.
I've had the same experience stopping Busse's coated blades. Never had one that kept it's coating for too long!!
Quite possibly the best, most used strop I own is the small one on the Work Sharp Guided Field Sharpener. It's only 1/2 in. wide and 4 inches long, but is very easy to dial in the angle and right amount of pressure to strop most blade shapes and sizes.
I may pick up one of the Chinese cheapos and give it try.
Strops shipping this week: thank you!!
Thank you for your kind and generous gift. I'm looking forward to gluing it to a piece of cabinet grade plywood that I have.
Have a blessed day,
I also use corrugated. Cardboard and compound for convex edges,it works as good as any leather strop ,and it super cheap lol
Thanks again Mike!
