    Finishing (10K) stone followed by felt-lined strop (unloaded). Sometimes I finish with a natural stone.

    Quick question what do people consider stropping on the stone. To me that is still just using the stones or same as F. Even if you are doing dedicated edge trailing strokes, to me that is finishing on the stone and no really stropping.

    To me stropping is using some other medium besides the stone to aid in finishing. Just curious what others think.
