Premium Black Leather Strop

Leather strops are an essential part of your Japanese knife maintenance routine. Why use a strop for Japanese knives? Because it's the safest way to maintain an extremely sharp edge between sharpening sessions. It also protects your knife; ceramic rods can chip your knife, and steel rods are too soft to sharpen your knife.

Why a Strop Block?

Why choose this strop? A 3" x 8" strop block is a good choice if you sharpen your knives on whetstones. This allows you to maintain the same angle and stroke as you do when sharpening your edges. Remember, edge trailing, or gently stropping the knife away from the apex, will remove microscopic pieces of the edge, breaking down and restoring your blade to its laser-like glory. Can I use the strop by itself? Yes! On its own, a strop will help realign and maintain your edge between sharpenings. However, we strongly recommend adding on our 2-micron strop shots. Why 2 micron? You can really get crazy with strop shots, but anything below 1 micron is really for razor honing and sharpening. 2 micron leaves and refreshes a nice bite back to your blade.

Great strop - Strop Shots Make it Shine!

This strop looks nice, and does its job. I like how it fits in my stone holder, and I can use it at the final stage of my sharpening process. The 2 micron Strop Shots Tokushu sells are incredible. In about 3 passes on each side you have a new edge. Excellent!

it works

I was learning about sharpening, stones and jnats, and the horrors of steels, etc... when I started to notice that many of the people I was listening to were big on stropping. Chefs were swearing by the use of a strop to significantly extend times between steel-on-stone sharpening. I eventually bought this strop block. I had a lower quality strop; as with everything else with sharpening, quality matters far more than a few dollars saved. Stropping significantly improves the sharpness of the blade after sharpening. Also, stropping maintains the sharpness of the blade after every few uses. Finally, the strop compounds work. I find that using a strop with compound for maintenance keeps blades sharpest..

Nothing short of perfect!

This strop block is what I was missing in my sharpening process. Love the rubber on the bottom which makes it really easy to just quickly place on a counter top and strop. I’ve been enjoying finishing all of my knives on this for a razor sharp edge. Also, Tokushu has the best customer service out there - they’ll take good care of you. A++++ from me, thanks!


Great block from a great company!
