Real men don’t take their knives to be sharpened by a service. Real men use a strop! Check out this small American business: Wicked Products.

Grunts: strop

Wicked Products hand builds custom knife strops. They typically use woods like maple or oak and rawhide leather, but also use rarer types of wood when available. A wide variety of styles and sizes are available: 12″, 18″, 24″, rough leather side up, smooth leather side up, suede- or paracord-wrapped handles, or with attached beads (often skulls). They come with leather lanyards (some with copper lanyard savers), are single- or double-sided, and come pre-loaded with chromium oxide, diamond paste or diamond spray (if you want to really do it up right).
