Leather Strop with Tempered Glass Base

by Burrfection

$47.99

Back by popular demand, and in limited supply are my strops with temper glass base plates.  I love playing and experimenting with different materials for my strops, and the last time I made strops with temper glass was back in 2018, and all 100 pieces made were sold out in a matter of days. 

Now, I’m releasing another 200 pieces for a limited time. 

With the same level of attention that I put into everything I design, these temper glass plates have a high polish all around and  have chamfered edges and corners, and are very comfortable to hold.

    Rolled Buffalo Premium

    The Best all-around leather for stropping. Period.

    Rolled Buffalo strops are Burrfection's best selling strops. After testing dozens of types of leather, this particular grade of leather has proven to be suited for practically every type of knife steel. The leather is extremely resilient, and does not warp, and very dense, due to how it was finished. Can be loaded with any compound, or used bare. 

    • Premium grade leather for stropping your knives and razors to their absolute sharpest.
    • Perfect strop for beginners or pro knife sharpeners.
    • Suited for practically every steel type
    • Ideal for loading with 5K-14K grit compound or use naked (without loading)
    • Extremely resilient, flat - Perfect for stropping knives with micro-bevels
    • 2 Size Choices: 10 inch (10" x 2.5") or 12 inch (12" x 3")

    Buffalo hide strops are extremely glossy, and robust. They can be used with or without stropping compound, and will give your knives and razors an amazing edge. Buffalo hide is naturally oily, and glossy. 

    Raw Equine Premium

    For those who love stropping, but do not want to bother using any stropping compound, raw equine offers the best of both worlds. It contains a high concentration of silicate like the premium equine, and is dense, similar to rolled buffalo. However, it is low concentration of oils, which makes the surface less slippery, and offers lots of control during stropping.  

    The high silicate concentration makes it very usable without any stopping compound.  But for those who want to load with stropping compound, we have found it takes 5-6K grit compound extremely well.  It’s currently heavily used by Ryky in his latest sharpening kit.

    • Raw Equine leather contains a high concentration of silicate like the premium equine, and is dense, similar to rolled buffalo.
    • Ideal for loading with 5K - 6K grit compounds
    • Offers lots of control during stropping
