This large double sided strop features 3 mm vegetable tanned leather on both sides of a hardwood backing.
One side has the flesh side out and the other side has the top grain out enabling you to have two different finishing edges for a razor sharp knife finish.
The strop is 90mm wide x 300mm long on a 20mm hardwood backing.
Typically a buffing or rubbing compound would be worked into the flesh (grainy) side of the leather where the majority of the stropping would occur, followed by a quick once or twice on the top grain side (no compound)
Stropping compound can be bought from Amazon for about $6 dollars, the brand I like is “Sharpal” and it will last for ages. Another alternative is Autosol which can be bought from many store including super cheap auto etc.
**depending on what leather I have available at the time, your strop may have another coloured leather (brown for example), keep in mind it will be covered in compound and strop marks shortly anyway…**
Great to deal with and high quality, fast and easy to order, excellent small business!
Great Size for stropping my Kitchen Knives, threw my tiny old one away as soon as I received my new one. Will be back once I wear this one out.
Strop arrived as scheduled. Strop is solid/well made. Has nice surfaces on both sides. Have not tried it yet - looking at how to precondition it to hold the paste well.
Hands down the best strop I’ve ever used. Bought it ages ago and haven’t had a chance to use it until today. Perfect leather on both sides. My knives come up to a mirror finish. As an amateur wood carver and whittler, this makes my knives beyond surgically sharp. Get one!
Thank you very much for the stropping block, it is well made and certainly fit for purpose.
I would definitely recommend the product:
Great size. I can tell quality materials have been used, including the timber block. I'm very happy with my choice to go with Anvil Hide's strop.

Having Thai stir-fries on a regular basis makes this leather strop very helpful in keeping the kitchen knives razor sharp. Very happy with strop.
Great, high quality Australian product. My knives have never been so sharp. If you are serious about knife sharpening, you have to have a leather strop. This product takes sharpness to the next level. Fast delivery, will be shopping here again!
I can't recommend Anvil Hide Strops highly enough. I've been using these strops now for 3+ years and I couldn't be happier with their performance. Whether it's a quick touch up or after a sharpening, they're my go to for both knives and tools in the workshop.
