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. And yes, the balsa and bovine strops have magnetic backing.

**Please note that the video below shows a horse strop; the kit now contains a bovine strop instead. As of November 5th we have added the .5 micron diamond paste along with the 1 micron diamond paste from a jar to a syringe for easier access. It's water based so you can cut the product with a drop or two of water to loosen it up.

  • Bark Tanned Bovine Strop 3" X 11"

    Itís unique to me with the magnetic sheets and balsa. Diamond solutions will give you a mirror. Works well. 3 x 11 is a very convenient size. Get a kit.

    This strop kit has everything you need to get great results. If you're just using stones, you're missing out on a final polish and hone that will leave your blade incredibly sharp.

    I was trying to decide on a strop when I came across this kit. I'm totally new to using a strop but this kit just made perfect sense to me. Having a base that allows me to change out different leather or balsa is the smartest thing I've seen. Balsa gets damaged, easily get an inexpensive replacement. Want to use multiple grits, buy an extra balsa or leather. Accidentally cut a a gouge into either piece, buy a replacement. The diamond paste seems to do a great job. I have hard steel knives (S90V, S110V...) and didn't want to waste my time with less aggressive compounds. I'm really impressed so far. This helped take my knives from really sharp to almost scary sharp.

    Very nice kit. High quality components. The base is heavy, the feet don't slip, balsa is straight and a great piece of leather. Give stropping a try!

    Posted By: Pat Barnes

    have one of the original strop kits I still use but wanted to try the"new improved" version plus I wanted to have 2 different grits to use. Haven't seen it mentioned in any review BUT this device is amazing on woodworking tools,too. I use it for finishing wood chisels, marking knives and plane irons. I can get a chisel sharp enough to cut AIR(just kiddidng) But, if you are a woodworker and want the best edge on paring chisels get this bad boy!

    Partly thanks to the videos provided on this site, this tool is easy to learn and use. I like the magnetic design in particular, as having a single base saves on space.

    Posted By: Vince Hoang - verified customer

    The leather strop feels bumpy when I used it when first received. The surface looks smooth but I can feel thatís itís not flat. Donít know if itís from the bottom side of the leather. Havenít use it since.

    The strop set arrived quickly in excellent new condition. It works as advertised and cleaned up the edges on the several knives I used it on, leaving them considerably sharper, even after an 8000 grit stone.

    Takes just a few strops with this thing to bring my Knives back to razor sharp. Very easy to use, and only takes a minute. Excellent to occasionally use to bring your knife back to a keen edge.

    I love this kit. the stable platform it provides while stropping is great. Swapping between the balsa and the leather is a breeze with the magnet. Helps you to truly refine your edge.

    5  Good value, October 24, 2017
    Posted By: T.M. - verified customer

    Product works well and for the price, good value. I like the idea of very well made metal base with magnetic strops. Balsa works well although I find I prefer using a leather strop I already had loaded with green chrome rouge. Would have been a great buy had I not already had some strops but now I guess it's easier for me as I keep one set in the kitchen and one in the bathroom :)

    Posted By: Derek - verified customer

    Great value. The balsa with the 1 micron diamond paste is my favorite way to strop a knife. Edges get really 'crisp" in just a few passes per side, and they're easy to refresh when they lose that initial sharpness.

    5  Takes your edge to 11, July 11, 2016
    Posted By: Carol T. - verified customer
    1 people found this review helpful

    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.

    Posted By: Juan P. - verified customer

    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.

    Posted By: Victor Jelbring - verified customer

    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.
