    Felt is on the way!

    We'll have felt pads in stock next week sometime. This is real good stuff - I sprung for the best. I'll post when it arrives.

    Oh and we'll have felt de-burring blocks available as well.

    Cool, once the strops are available id like to order with some Cr-oxide and blade oil. Hard to find this stuff here.

    Any strop bases on the way or just the felt? I would be interested in a base. Never got into stroping, I think it's about time I do.

    I have been wanting to do a base but I don't want to do the same old thing. I have some ideas for something different that I feel would be very useful but it's proving to be more complicated to get done than I had hoped so for the time being I have no plans to sell a strop base.

    FWIW, I wouldn't stay away from stropping just because of not having a base available to you. A simple block of wood with felt glued to it can work just great. Anyone who has been to one of my sharpening classes can tell you about this as that's what I use.

    Our standard size felt pads will be 11" x 3" in either plain or magnet backed.

    The plain felt pad is meant to be glued to a substrate. Can be used as either a replacement or upgrade.

    The magnet backed version is compatible with any base that's got a steel plate or magnetic receptive material on it's face (top side) and also bases that are solid steel plates.

    The magnetic block is great if you are into to polishing blades; just lay the knife on it for safety. Never cut yourself again at least on single bevels.
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    Cool, just curious is it available in sizes other than 11"x3" as well?
