Pros: Durability, Ease of Use, Effectiveness, Overall Quality
Better than expected.
very light wood and very thin leather but amazingly effective. I have used it on over 2 dozen knives in the last few weeks and it polishes the edges to literally razor sharp very quickly. I have done the same with other leather and this is my first pre-built strop but it works so much quicker than I expected. Most of the knives have been 440c or similar metals or something softer so have not yet tried it with high-carbon blades. I am worried about the durability and I see tiny pieces of leather grain fall away quite frequently but it continues to hold up nicely.I only gave 4 stars because I use it on folders and fixed-blades of over 3 inches when it was designed for smaller woodcarving tools so not really a reflection of the product as much as for my particular needs.It is a little smaller than expected because the logo takes up a good inch of the overall length but not really a problem.
