“The Mechanics of Stropping – Why Stropping Works”

Another well-written, informative blog post from Joel, at Tools for Working Wood which I purloin with impunity. (This one has color illustrations!) This is a sharpening blog, after all, and I’m always on the lookout for sharpening tips, tricks, gadgets and gear that I agree with and think you should know about. Joel’s latest post is The Mechanics of Stropping – Why Stropping Works. Once again, I agree with him completely — a good analysis of what stropping is all about and how to put it to the best use. Thanks again, Joel, I appreciate your ongoing contributions to our community.

"This is a really great book"

“This is a really great book”

And, yes, I include a bit about stropping in my book, The Perfect Edge, The Ultimate Guide to Sharpening for Woodworkers, on pages 110 and 111. It’s out in paperback (Buy Paperback Now!) now but we still have a limited (dwindling) supply of hardback copies (Buy Hardback Now!) in stock.
