It sure is expensive. Seeing that people have been stropping for a long time on things that are much cheaper (including cardboard and jeans), and have been quite successful that way, I'm a bit skeptical. Even if the Nanocloth is better in some way, does it really need to be? I can strop my knives to stupid sharp already on leather, so I don't quite see the point.I think Nanocloth is overpriced and overrated.
Could you give more information on the abrasives you used and found beneficial?View attachment 87572
There's a specific draw to it, that I managed to bypass almost entirely by changing the abrasive (now it just glides with ease).
Compared to the control strop (balsa at the moment), I do get some less aggressive edge, but it's able to cut just fine with plenty aggressiveness for a tomato or a bell pepper.
