Polishing the edge of a sharp knife is called stropping. Stropping removes the last small imperfections of the knife edge and increases the sharpness. Stropping also makes the cutting edge shine like a mirror, otherwise called a "mirror-edge". It is a technique that many people associate with classic razors, but also outdoor knives, pocket knives and kitchen knives benefit from stropping. This leather hanging strop can be hung from a fixed object like a wall, counter or barber chair for both storage and use. On one end of the strop is a clasp and on the other a generously sized handle. Attach a sturdy anchor point like an eye bolt to a wall or counter, hang the strop by the clasp from your anchor point and then grab the handle to pull it taut when using.
