Keeping a sharp knife is a requirement for both efficiency and safety during use. Unfortunately this is more difficult to do in the field where we need it most, and the small sharpening stones available for backpacking usually produce subpar results. Our Pocket Strop is designed to solve this problem, and will keep your edges razor sharp without adding weight or bulk to your pack. The strop can be used as is but will be even more effective when "charged" by adding a polishing compound to the leather's surface. Handmade in the USA using the finest vegetable tanned leather with solid copper rivets and brass stud.
