    So I was cruising on the Esee forum a while back and ran across Flexxx Strops…and I bought one…2 actually..let me say that they are AWESOME!

    I bought a Quad that has 3 sides treated with compounds Black (3000grit), Green (6000grit), White (12k grit) and raw leather to finish and I am stunned!

    I bought the Quad and the Pro Field II to go in my pack…very good products!

    Here are a few pics of the handy work!

    I use a lansky system to sharpen the knife and then use the Strops to put the finishing edge on…..the strop is the last leg of the sharpening process…

    Wow. Adding grits to the strop takes it to a whole different level of usefulness.
    That makes a lot of sense for finer work in between a fine stone and a bare strop.

    EXACTLY….and it works….I wish I could get a pic of how highly polished and sharp the edges are…this is a fine system, reasonable price, and a great guy to do business with…The Field Strop goes in the bag and has a Black side and a Green side and is VERY USEFUL!…..

    I've never seen that before- but I'm sure it's one heck of a useful tool... I run the usual Lansky stones up to the ultra fine (yellow backed stone) and then use the back of my belt to break off the wire edge.

    Those grits would be a heck of a polishing step to finish off instead of the belt (or at least before the raw leather final step)

    Thanks for sharing that!

    This thing puts a hair popping edge on a blade and will shine it like nothing I have ever seen….pretty impressive piece of kit!
