Hey Salty, great strop. I've been using leather for years, with good results, but I know I could get better. I love this idea. Could you describe a little more about your choices in the four different compounds you use? Where are these found?
P.S. just watched the video of you using three knives to do the push-test cut through a tomato. Wow, my blade seemed to do pretty good. Did you do a written review of the three knives somewhere?
No secrets. I'm still trying to figure out the best combos of compounds and surfaces. On balsa I've just been going down in particle size in the progression. With the addition of two types of leather I'm experimenting. The goal is to use one strop after the other so If I want to go crazy I can use 8 different surfaces or depending on the condition of the edge use one or the other.
