This kit includes all you need to get razor sharp edges. We recommend you use the paste on the balsa. Use a small amount and spread it thin. A little goes a long way. Then finish your knives with the bark tanned bovine strop by itself.

**Please note that the video below shows a horse strop; the kit now contains a bovine strop instead.

  • Richmond Strop Base
  • Bark Tanned Bovine Strop 3" X 11"
  • Balsa Strop 3" x 11"
  • 1 Micron Diamond Paste

    5  Takes your edge to 11, July 11, 2016
    Posted By: Carol T.

    I can't really say anything that hasn't already been said before, but I will 53rd it, lol. I got this kit after watching a Ken Scwartz video showing what stropping could do, and I have used it a lot. It takes the edge from sharp after stones to just insane. Having the strop kit also saves me from going back to stones to refresh my edges. I can strop several times in between getting out the stones, and get nice results.

    The balsa and the compound have lasted me for months, and through a lot of knife sharpening. My balsa is at the point of needing to be replaced (sanding is also an option), and I still have some compound. The base of course I can use forever. Point is, this is a great value. You can replace things as they wear out and just keep going.

    The only thing I would change about this kit is to go back to the horse butt and increase the price a little. The surface of the cow butt is not that smooth, and I am going to get the horse butt to use instead whenever it comes back in stock.

    Another great product. If you are serious about getting the most of your knives buy it, worth every dollar. The base is simple but sturdy and well constructed. The balsa wood wasn't 100% flat but with a little of sanding was perfect. The paste is going to last. I have mine over 6 month and there still have of it left. Make sure you wipe your blade well before using the leather or you will end up loading it. All in all another great product by CKTG.

    This set as many people before me has qouted , does really take your sharpening experience to the very next level, that is ofc if you are a person who demands the very best possible sharpness and cutting performance.
    This kit will take you a very long way, the base is solid and hold everything steady, the wood stropp is so nice and smoth and with the dimond spray that comes with it, just a few first stroke and you can tell straight away that your edge is now already something you have not touch or tase before.
    To finish of with the kits horse but strop, is just such a great product to work with, just with a few last smooth stroke your knife will end up in a condition that only deserve big stand up and take a bow.

    one thing I can advise to anyone who is thinking to buy this set is a few following details that is good to know.

    Yes for GOD sake buy this kit if you wanna take it to a new level and yes the price is so much value, after using it I could easy pay twice if I had to.

    when you use your Horse Strop, please what ever you do, do not just force your blade down on to it.

    Place it down nice a controled, otherwise like we all do in the start, even myself cut small marks on the leather, just cause the blade is so dam sharp, you really have to place it down nice and slow and then manke a light but yet firm stroke.
    Last thing what I love about this kit is that when you are using the strops and start stroping, the aroma / smell from the wood and leather is just unbelivible, that smell really is something beautifull to have around you when you sharpen your knifes. Great Product and Great Value for your money. and Tanks to Mark and his wife for exelent service ! Big TIme.

    This, along with every other product I've bought from Mark, is excellent. I bought this because it has everything I need for proper stropping. I don't have to buy pieces individually. That's why I keep coming back to Chefknivestogo, and I recommend it to all my friend for the same reasons.

    Great kit! It took my knives to a higher level. I used to sharpen with a 1000-5000 grid wet stone but this kit complements perfectly and completes the job.
