Rubberized cork strop with recycled rubber base for use with polishing compounds. 14" x 3" long and 3/8” thick with recycled rubber base for extra height and slip resistance.
This cork strop is our shop favorite for deburring in tandem with a paste compound. It successfully de-burrs and enhances the finished polish; finely honing the work of the fine synthetic or natural stones. It is a very dense composite, approximately 15 to 20x more dense than a regular cork pushpin board.
Since this strop is rubberized, it can be cleaned with soap and water if it accidentally gets greasy in a kitchen or to remove unwanted or spent abrasive. We have been using these strops for over 10 years and find they typically last us at least 5 years in our busy sharpening workshop stropping at least 50 knives daily each.
When used with paste compounds, let the compound fully dry before stropping. A small amount should be spread thinly over the strop and cover most of the strop face; re-apply a smaller amount over spent abrasive, a little goes a long way!
