Don't pay $70-$90 for crappy strops on Amazon and Ebay, which use cheap leather and soft woods.
The rolled buffalo strops are my best selling strops. After testing dozens of types of leather, this particular grade of leather has proven to be suited for practically every type of knife steel. The leather is extremely resilient, and does not warp, and very dense, due to how it was finished. Can be loaded with any compound, or used bare.
If loading, I have found that around 14K grit is the upper usable limits. Any finer, the Law of Diminishing Returns really kick in.
The rolled buffalo leather is a perfect strop for beginners or pro knife sharpeners.
Premium grade leather for stropping your knives and razors to their absolute sharpest.
Limited edition run of rare buffalo hide, press and rolled, to create an extremely hard, even, and smooth surface.
Perfect for those who like stropping, but don't want the leather to give, potentially ruining, or rounding off a microbevel.
The hides are all between 7-9 oz in weight.
Base material options: carbon fiber, acrylic / polycarbonate
Dimensions: 10" x 2.5" for general stropping 12" x 3 " for general stropping for larger knives
I purchased the 12” rolled buffalo strop. It has plenty surface area for big knives. The leather is of superb quality. I would definitely recommend this strop for others.
Just as advertised
Super impressed with the quality and ease of use of this strop. Using Ricky's instructional videos made the learning curve on how to use it pretty easy. Overall, very very pleased and I will be using it for a long time to come!
Rolled Buffalo Premium Strop. I did say PREMIUM, didn’t I?
Smooth and silky. High quality, very well built. It handled a straight razor better than I did. I already put a small cut on the strop. I guess I don’t have to worry about it now. I’ll use it more and more. Thanks Ryky.
