Flexcut Strops – The Secret to Razor Sharp Carving Tools!

About Flexcut Tool Company:

Flexcut Tool Company Inc. was founded in 1986, under the name of Falls Run Woodcarving, primarily as a custom carving shop and woodcarving school.

In 1992 Flexcut began manufacturing a new breed of wood carving tools to address the needs of the modern hobbyist and professional.
Flexcut’s unwavering commitment to customer service, continuous improvement, and innovation ensures the delivery of products that utilize cutting edge technology and are consistently superior in quality.
 
Product Description:

This Flexcut Hook Strop is used to polish the inside edge of hook knives & keeping your blades razor sharp. The hook strop is also used to remove the wire edge that forms after sharpening with the hook hone. It has an 9" long leather top stropping surface.

Simply strop your knife blade away from the cutting edge on both sides to maintain your factory edge. Includes a 1 ounce (28.5 gram) bar of Flexcut Gold Polishing Compound designed to adhere to the strop by rubbing the bar on the leather surface of the strop. An excellent & quality hook honing strop. Made in USA.

How to Sharpen your Blades

Apply the polishing compound to the strop liberally. Drag your blade away from the cutting edge at a 15° angle, or when the bevel lays flat. Repeat several times on each side of the blade to polish the edge.

When to use the Knife Strop

Your tools can be kept sharp by using the Knife Strop periodically as you cut. A few moments taken to maintain the edge will save time & frustration & keep your tools in top working order. On softer woods, a few strokes should be given to each side of the blade every 20 - 30 mins. For carving harder materials, the frequency or number of strokes should be increased.
 
Your Flexcut carving tools are pre-sharpened at the factory to a highly polished razor's edge. This creates an efficient, long-lasting cutting tool. The more polished the edge, the sharper it is and the longer it will stay sharp. Keeping your tools sharp requires some routine maintenance. This can most easily be done by periodically stropping both sides of the edge (outside and inside) with a Flexcut Strop Flexcut Gold™ Polishing Compound.

Sharpening stones should not be used for this routine maintenance. They are too coarse and will put scratches in the polish, reducing the sharpness.
