Stropping

Stropping is a good way to keep sharp edges on your tools. The leather strop that is shown on page 8 of Woodsmith No. 171 came from the Woodsmith Store. Similar strops are available from sources listed below.

In addition to the strop, you'll need an abrasive compound to hone the edges. The Yellowstone compound came from Woodcraft. The Veritas Honing Compound is available from Lee Valley and the Woodsmith Store.
