For those who seek the finest long-lasting sharpness, please use this product for finishing.
With sticky stainless steel knives and the like, even finishing whetstones cannot smoothen the very small rough edges on the blade. This is where the knife strop shows its true value. By polishing the edge of the blade against this leather strap, you will be able to cleanly take off the burrs (the small ridges) and bring back its luster. To use it, spread the green stick (abrasive) on the back side of the leather and sharpen, before finishing with the front side. For those who want the finest long-lasting sharpness, this is an excellent tool for finishing.

Rub the abrasive(green stick) on the back side of the leather.
The procedure is the same as using a whetstone for deburring.
As in the image below, polish the blade edge gently against the strop.
❶ With the spine of the blade facing you, rub the blade on the strop towards you.
❷ Once you have pulled the blade all the way towards you, now with the sharp edge facing you, push the blade towards the other end.
Repeat steps ❶ – ❷, polishing the knife evenly from the point to the heel.
You can use the front side of the strop for the last finish.
Repeat steps ❶ – ❷ several times with light force to finish.
