Razor Stropper

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

A razor strop is a flexible strip of leather or canvas used to sharpen and polish the blade of a straight razor, a knife, or a woodworking tool like a chisel. Unlike honing a blade, in which a whetstone removes metal bent out of alignment from the blade’s edge, stropping the blade realigns the indentations without removing any material.
