Double Sided Pack Strop
We designed this strop to be compact, comfortable to use, and easily stowable in backpack or possibles kit. Perfect for those quick edge touch ups in the field. Made with double sided premium 6oz leather, on 1/4" Walnut oiled wood. A rough side (flesh side) for aggressive cutting compound for quickly removing the bur from the edge, and a smooth side (grain side) for polishing compound to finish up the edge.
Available untreated, or treated. For the treated strops, we use Black rouge for the aggressive cutting compound, and Green rouge for the polishing compound.
Overall dimensions: 5.5" x 1.25"
Leather dimensions: 3.75" 1.125"
I've been wanting to throw a leather strap in my day bag to use as a strop. When I saw this, while buying some other gear, I thought I'd give it a shot. It's nice and compact; the perfect addition to my day pack. But it is plenty big to do the job. I cleaned up the edges on a few of my favorite knives to try it out. Razor sharp even on some hard stainless blades. Highly recommend.
This strop was just what I was looking for. Love to sit and strop my knives but wanted something small enough for the hiking pack. This little guy is perfect and light.
