But how many strokes should you make to achieve that razor-sharp edge? We recommend 12-15 strokes on each side as a starting point. If your knife still lacks the desired sharpness, don't hesitate to strop a bit more. For those wondering about the correct angle, match it with your sharpening angle. It's that simple!

Revitalize your blades and maintain their cutting precision with our Black Dragon Forge Leather Strop.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How many times should you strop a knife?
A: Begin with 12-15 strokes on each side and adjust as needed. If your knife isn't performing as expected, additional stropping might be necessary.

Q: What angle should I strop a knife at?
A: Generally, match the stropping angle to your sharpening angle. Holding your knife perpendicular (90 degrees) to the surface can help you identify the correct angle. Half of 90 is 45 degrees, and half of that is 22.5 degrees.
