I like my knives sharp enough to shave a gnat’s a$$. Shouldn’t everyone?
Hand made in the USA with unparalleled attention to detail.
The Deluxe Premium represents the top of the line strops that I make for my
Bushcraft Supply brand.
I hand select all lumber, cut straight from the mill. I ensure that the
leather is always flush with the wood. These features, and the thicker leather,
are several qualities that set “Bushcraft Supply” strops apart from others on
the market because allowing the user to more effectively make contact with and
strop re-curved edges.
These are made from 3/4" thick solid red oak. Premium 10 oz leather is used
with one side smooth, the other rough. The lanyard hole is reinforced with a
stainless steel tube 1/4" in diameter. This is so it can be hung from a metal
hook in your workshop without damaging the wood itself. Hand sanded and
finished with a generous coat of boiled linseed oil on the handle. I use boiled
linseed oil because it penetrates, strengthens, and protects the wood.
This strop is 6” overall with 3.5” x .75” stropping surface, lending itself
well to sharpening your blade in the field. These easily portable strops are
perfect for sharpening carving and whittling knives. Includes two smooth and
two rough stropping surfaces. I make every one of these by hand in my shop so
they will vary slightly in dimensions and from the picture you see but every
one will be made to my exacting standards and I will not send out a strop I'm
not completely confident will serve you well for many years.
The strop pictured is a prototype. You will receive a new, hand made strop.
