Leather strop usage and care
i made this strop tonight. took a piece of old belt i had, sanded off the finish that was on the surface to expose the fine leather then glued it to a piece of plywood
also have this little strop block i made out of a piece of a swanky womans boot. i been using some honing compound on this one.
should i use the compound on the new one too? will it make a finer edge just with the leather or with the compound? i know the compound will cut faster.
i know that stropping can and will produce a razors edge. and i've dont this over the years with everything from my belt to these strops.
any advice on usage or care?
