Introducing the Pioneer's Strop, a 3.5" x 10" slab of American-made leather that brings the fine art of stropping to your doorstep. Stropping isn't just about sharpening your knives; it's about maintaining a razor-sharp edge that can pop hairs like nobody's business. Seriously, this leather honing strop is your ticket to high-speed, low-drag performance. 

Now, let's get one thing straight: stropping doesn't replace sharpening. It's the unsung hero of your maintenance routine, bridging the gap between sharpening sessions. This means less sharpening, less blade material removal, and ultimately, a longer life for your cherished tools.

The Pioneer's Strop comes with four types of stropping compound, each designed to fine-tune your edge to perfection. Apply a light coat of compound on the strop, place your blade at the same angle as the edge, and pull it backward. Use gentle pressure, draw from heel to tip, and alternate 7-10 passes on each side. Your goal? Hair-popping sharpness.

Here's the breakdown:

  • Brown (Grit: 500) - For that initial touch-up.
  • Blue (Grit: 1000) - Getting smoother, getting sharper.
  • White (Grit: 1200) - Almost there, feel that edge.
  • Green (Grit: 1500) - The final touch, the razor’s edge.

Whether you're in the field, at camp, or just at home, the Barber's Strop ensures your blades are always ready for action. Embrace the art of stropping and keep your knives performing at their peak. Happy honing!
