Iíve seen and read a lot of comments on stropping edges as a final step in the honing process and Iím interested in trying that.
Can someone please describe the type of leather preferred? Is it hard like a barberís strop? I have some deer hide that is like suede on one side and is smooth on the other but overall is soft. Is this acceptable if adhered to a backer board?
How much do you strop? I guess Iím concerned that there is the possibility of rounding the edge.
