Now you can find a double-sided soft strop. We use 2,2 mm thick Italian brown leather on one side and 'suede' on the other. In between is thick birch plywood. It does not bend, and the board gives a myriad of uses. Will stay steady in place on the table.
I experienced a real wow effect when I realized to start using a long Strop board. Once you have tried a long strop board, there is no going back ;)
This leather is so-called "soft" hardness on the manufacturer's scale of 2/6 and gives an excellent response. The suede side is very tight to the touch and also works well for direct stropping.
My method is to put the board in a diagonal position, one end lower on the table and the other end in my hand. I move the knife back and forth a few dozen times, and the blade is diamond-sharp.
Long: 400 mm
