Nothing will maintain the mirror edge sharpness on your carving knives and chisels like a good leather strop ~ nor, most of all, make your carving cleaner and easier!
These quality wheel-type leather strops fit into any power hand drill or drill press and will polish your tools in record time. They are rated for use at speeds of 600 to 800 rpm. Apply a generous coat of our Red Rouge to the leather first. In addition, you can then apply either Green or Gold Compound directly over top of the red rouge. You will find that by using the Red first, the green or gold compound will adhere much easier.
Leather Power Strops
We offer these Leather Power Strops in two kits: standard kit and Deluxe kit. BOTH kits include a 3.5″ diameter leather wheel that is 3/4″ wide, a mounting mandrel and a stick of white rouge buffing compound. The DELUXE KIT contains a 3.5″ diameter V-shaped leather wheel for buffing inside V-tools and gouges in addition to the 3/4″ wide wheel.

RED COMPOUND: We have added more 'grease' to the binding agent which makes the compound more pliable and easier to work into your leather strop and the Flexcut Slip Strop. By applying a coat of RED "first", you will find that the Green and/or Gold Compounds will adhere to your strop easier. It is not as abrasive as other compounds, but will give your tools that final 'mirror like' finish. Our 6oz bar will last quite a while!
