Griffin Leather Honing Strop

Turned on a lathe and hand planed by Will Griffin in Brooklyn, the cherry wood body of this leather strop is brushed with garnet shellac and finished with furniture wax. Then, to keep your kitchen knives sharper for longer, a rough strip of vegetable tanned horse butt leather on one side is ready for a buffing compound, while a smooth strip on the other side finishes the edge. Wide and comfortable in the hand for an improved stropping experience.

We also suggest the Living Steel 626 Leather Honing Strop collaboration with Will Griffin.
