Thread: Cutting f1 felt advice?

    Cutting f1 felt advice?

    I'm making some felt strops for some friends at work and I'm wondering if anyone here has ever cut 1/8" f1 felt before? Looking for advice/suggestions before I start and muck it up. Thanks all!

    A rotary wheel cutter is your best bet.


    BTW, have you tried f1 felt for strops before? I have and found it too mushy but was curious what your impressions were.

    Hey Dave, thanks for the wheel cutter suggestion. Never tried f1 for strops. It's just the hardest felt I can find, so I thought it might be right for strops. Can you suggest a more appropriate felt or alternative? Thanks!

    Look for rock hard felt. This stuff is pretty good.

    I cut felt with Olfa utility knife. I use 2" tall parallel (tool room stuff) and glide the blade flat on it, so I get a pretty clean cut.
