Leather DIY knife polishing strop kit with 3M tape and polishing paste kit

Leather DIY knife polishing strop kit with 3M tape and polishing paste kit

The leather strop is an accessory that allows you to thoroughly polish the blade after sharpening. The handcrafted 3mm thick vegetable tanned cowhide strap allows you to attach the leather to a wood, MDF, or acrylic base of your choice using the supplied 3M adhesive tape, or simply use it on its own. Both sides of the leather, smooth and rough, can be used as you prefer.

The polishing kit, which includes a set of four polishing pastes and a beeswax balm, is a handy kit for the final stage of sharpening.

The leather allows to precisely polish the cutting edge and obtain the maximum sharpness of the blade. The use of polishing paste enhances the polishing effect, giving the blade a mirror-like smoothness and high gloss, as well as preventing discolouration and rusting. Polishing the blade removes all the scratches and burrs created during sharpening.

The leather has a smooth side and a rough side, so this accessory can be adapted to the user's preferences. The leather is versatile and very easy to use. It can be used to polish all types of kitchen knives, including chef's knives, santoku and cleavers, as well as outdoor knives, pocket knives, bladed multi-tools, scissors and razors.

What's in the DIY kit?

The DIY kit contains the highest quality 3mm thick leather, 3M adhesive tape, a set of four different graded polishing pastes and a softening balm.

The honing compounds have been specially developed for use on leather strops. They are soft and easy to use. The lanolin and beeswax contained in the paste soften and nourish the leather, allowing you to achieve excellent polishing results.
