There are tons of options when stropping. Several different materials substrates, then a few different compounds in a bunch of different grit ratings. Add it all up and there are literally thousands of progression combinations. Most people do not have the funds to try every single option, so I figured I would ask people what they like to use. Should give those just getting into strops what to get, and those who already strop some new combinations to try.
So, please include:
Steel: What steel your knife or knives are that you use this progression on. If you like using different progressions for different steels, feel free to suggest multipe progressions.
Finishing Stone: What stone you finish on.
Strop 1: Substrate (balsa, split leather, smooth leather, etc) and compound (Micron rating and type of compound).
Strop 2: Repeat as many times as necessary.
Final Edge: Describe the edge you achieve with this progression if you can. Toothy, smooth, delicate, etc.
If you try a new progression, good or bad, feel free to add it to the list and some feedback. Thanks!
