The Lansky HSTROP Leather Stropping Hone is made in the USA and Designed for use with the Lansky Controlled Angle Sharpening System. This specialty leather hone is used to polish your edge to a razor sharp, mirror's edge as the final stage of blade sharpening. This leather hone is used only on blades that are already extremely sharp. Polishing a knife edge or “stropping” with leather will result in the most keen edge your blades have seen since they left the factory. Stropping with leather is an age old technique for polishing a blade edge that delivers unparalleled results.
Since 1979, Lansky Sharpeners have been acknowledged as the world leader in sharpening technology. Each Lansky Sharpener is designed to meet exacting performance, reliability and safety standards. A pioneer of fixed angle sharpeners, Lansky has made knife sharpening virtually foolproof, as well as completely ambidextrous. With Lansky Sharpeners you can choose from four different sharpening angles.
30 degree Angle: An outstanding angle for knives that see use as utility knives, like those used to cut cardboard, pallet straps or carpeting.
25 degree Angle: This is the recommended angle for most knives that need a durable, sharp edge. An ideal angle for hunting and outdoor knives.
20 degree Angle: A commonly used angle for higher grade, quality blades. Provides an excellent edge that is perfect for kitchen knives.
17 degree Angle: A severe angle only recommended for razor blades, X-Acto blades or similar tools. Yields an extremely sharp, but delicate edge.
