Free Strop Leather ...ALL GONE! Shipped five packages today. 9/19
« on: September 14, 2012, 09:09:00 PM »
I went to my local leather shop and sifted thru their scrap bins. I found some leather belt scraps that would make nice strops.

I used mine to glue to a 2"x2" block of oak.

If you'd like to try leather stropping your BHs or knives then the first three to shoot me a PM with your address will get the leather.

I'd prefer to send to those in need of trying to get the ever elusive shaving edge but the first three to PM will get'em.

Length varies but the longest is roughly 8 inches long, give or take.

Canada and USA.

My strop is seen in this photo.

Hey Bud,This is a cool offer and I'd like to give it a try if it's still available.I'd like to sharpen my knives and BHs that ,I "thought" were sharp but were far from it.
  Thanks for the link too,I'll have everything I need now.I tried those commercial sharpeners nad they don't cut it,at least for me.

Thanks!

Could you throw my name in the hat?  Just got some new ACE standards and I'm close to scary sharp but not quite close enough I'm afraid.  

Thanks,
Ben

You two shoot me PMs with your addresses and I'll send out next week.

Got busy plans this weekend and will not be able to get to the PO.

That's all three.

I can check back with the leather shop next week if someone feels the need to try a strop. Maybe a few more and I'll have to cut it off due to shipping costs adding up. But only if I can get more scraps.

I'm good on the materials..finding red rouge was a bigger pain than the strop, in my case. Just wanted to say,"Good on ya!" for your generosity.
Longbows, you see, do not make mistakes…there is no tuning to distract attention from the task at hand or provide excuses when arrows wind up in places we did not ask them to visit.

The very first person PM'd me an address. I have four more requests but no addresses from PMs.

Five is my limit guys and gals. Sorry.

But I need addresses from those four.

Gene, Ben, Eric, and RedShaft, please PM an address.

Thanks.

I use the smooth side as a finisher, but either will work. The Brasso is the mian ingredient for me and my success. That, and getting the right angle and the "burr" on the edge before stropping.


Good luck all.

Bud  :)
