Deburring is the process of removing the wire-edge formed during sharpening process. The formation of burr is the indicator that a knife is now ready to move on to the next stone, however the wire-edge has to be removed before proceeding.
Stropping with leather is a popular way to remove the burr. Customers often ask us about leather strops, so I worked with my leather guy to introduce the K&S strop that is designed with knife users in mind:
- Premium Argentine vegetable tanned leather
- Medium grit is made of second layer cowhide, which is great for low to medium grit deburring, as we as loading polishing compounds such as the TOYO Green Rouge
- Fine grit is utilizes first layer cowhide that is very fine and suitable for the final high grit deburring for knives and razors
- Elegent yet super functional wooden base with magnet, you can stick it on the fridge, under the work bench or virtually anywhere metal!
