- Hold the bevel against the surface of the strop with light pressure and move the blade away from the cutting edge.
- Turn the blade over and do the same on the other side.
- The process is the same on any stropping surface, with or without a honing compound.
- Never move the blade toward the cutting edge as it will cut into the strop, resulting in dulling of the edge and damage to the strop.
- A few strokes are usually sufficient
- A strop is recommended to be used before you even think your edge is dull.
- Used consistently, it is a key step in maintaining a razor sharp edge.
