Sharpen your blades with this Kanayama #4560 Leather Strop with Handle. Its exquisite design uses a metal clamp to bind a woven canvas to a leather strop, crafted from the highest quality cordovan horse leather. You can use the metal snap hook above the clamp to firmly secure your strop, ensuring a safe sharpening experience. Keep this strop somewhere convenient so it’s easily accessible when things get dull.
Each Kanayama strop is identified by a model number that relates to the thickness of the leather. Ranging from 2196 to 80000 with this particular strop being in the lower range. Thicker leather tends to have a coarse surface, which is hand ground for optimal smoothness. The thicker the strop, the more work required, and the more expensive the strop becomes.
Famously made in Tokyo by one man, Mr. Kanoyama, whose brand was formed when he misspelled his own name, these strops have become world famous for their quality and durability. Look for the Kanayama logo on each strop.
