The Richmond Bovine Strop is the perfect choice for those looking to quickly touch up an edge on a knife or razor.

Strops are the most effective way of discharging fine abrasive materials to the bevel edge of your knife or razor. This bark-tanned bovine magnetic strop pad is made to fit the Richmond honing base. Easy to use, you can strop with the leather only or load the pad with various pastes with excellent results.

You will be amazed at how a few strokes on this strop will return a dull edge to perfect sharpness. Home cooks will be especially pleased with the ease and efficiency of the stropping process. Even those with little sharpening experience will find the use of a strop to be the easiest way of maintaining a fine edge on their blade.

5  Leather strops and slurries., March 22, 2021
Posted By: Rick - verified customer

I enjoy the convenience of the magnetic leather strop and base, for me the diamond strop polishing slurries are the best at removing metal and polishing the edge. For my experience, they are superior to the "green" metal polishing compound in that they work much faster and effectively. I use the strops and slurry for finishing the polish on the edges of my knives, but also restoring a nice edge on my wood working hand plane irons and chisels. I used mostly the 1 micron slurry, but I am going to experiment with the finer slurries.I plan on setting up leathers for each slurry size.

3  Good strop, but...., March 14, 2021
Posted By: Cameron - verified customer

For my intended use, this product does the job and I love that it only cost $15. There are two problems I encountered that are not negatively impacting my experience with this strop, but a prospective buyer with a different intended application might find the circumstances annoying or disappointing. First, the magnetic backing peeled off after two uses, a week or two after I bought it. Second, the strop has cupped.

It's a cheap product, so I don't necessarily expect longevity and really don't mind the issues, but a prospective buyer relying on a magnetic paddle might be annoyed, and someone buying their first stop might be setting themselves up for a poor experience. I'm just going to glue the strop to a flat piece of tile or wood and call it a day.

I used to use a honing rod, but now I prefer this method. Just a few passes on both sides yields great results that I find is better and more consistent. Thank you, Mark, for your advice and recommending this product.

I love the CKTG magnetic strop system. I had been using the denim strop and
wanted to try the leather. This one does an ok job but there are some high spots in the leather. They show up as graying dots. It does an ok job but not as good of quality as everything else i have purchased from here.

Got the magnetic base a couple a years ago and my first strop have since suffered a lot with my first unexperienced uses of it. So a got another one… That last finishing touch gives a truly remarkable edge to all of my knives. Cannot sharpen without it. I like the magnetic part of it… very stable.

We needed it, it works. Good deal in this day and age when finding a piece of leathers not as easy as it once was.

5  Bovine strop 3x11 Inch, October 30, 2017
Posted By: Daniel Rodriguez - verified customer

This is the second bovine strop I bought from mark because my other one was cut into pretty badly but there is nothing bad to say about this strip it's hard enough to not accidentally put a overly convex edge on your knives but still soft enough to take the geometry of your knife and it works great by itself and especially when loaded with 1 micron elmision it puts a hair shaving sharp edge on it and quickly touches up my aogami super and white #2 gyutos highly recommend

5  Great strop, January 5, 2017
Posted By: Chef Peter - verified customer

had the bovine before this and wanted to try something different/better....and this is it leaves silky mirror finish and does do a better job than the bovine....if you know how to feel for an edge with fingers or your thumb you will notice....i will buy anther soon...i always end up gouging mine eventually always helps to have a back up

5  Nice butt!, October 6, 2016
Posted By: Michtom - verified customer

Very nice strop. High quality piece of hide, and very flat. Denser and seems to have more silicate content than the top grain cow hide I've used. I had figured I'd be using it with honing compound, but this actually works very well without it. Magnetic backing is pretty nice - I can use it on top of my jointer table and it doesn't move a bit.

5  Strop, September 19, 2016
Posted By: Scatouli - verified customer

I'm a very beginner in the world of knives, and I watch the sharpening tutorials of Mark Richmond. That's the reason why I bought this strop. I'm not a specialist but after all the sharpening process, stroping the knife on this Horse Butt, finishes the blade really razor sharp, it's impressive! I also take the balsa and the diamond paste that works also very very well. For now I don't know if using you both of these is necessary. Time will tell.

4  Nice Edges, July 13, 2016
Posted By: Chris - verified customer

The surface of this strop has more irregularities than I expected but as a final strop after a natural stone finishing progression, it really makes a significant increase in edge quality. Highly recommended!

5  Good for knife edge polishing, July 10, 2016
Posted By: Ray M - verified customer

I use this after a balsa strop with 1 micron paste. It gives that last shine up to my edges. It can actually get back a slightly dull edge. It's a bit delicate so make your stokes with care. Overall a nice strop at a good price.

4  Good knife strop. , April 5, 2016
Posted By: Corey - verified customer

Got this as a gift. Works great for knives. I was looking into using it for straight razors but it's not very flat. Moisture and humidity changes create a slight bowing. For knife stropping pressure, no issue.
