    Went back to the leather strop I have and tried using the rougher side and it seemed to make it work much better. I have a load of different compounds but I think o.5 micron is the most useful

    My fave strop is a piece of 1.5mm veg tan leather course side up stuck to a flat bit of mdf. It holds compound really well and gives some cut. I havent used it on a micro bevel yet though for fear of rounding it. I use light pressure on the smooth side for that.
